Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Since 2012, the French Government has sought to develop apprenticeship in France and has established an ambitious recovery plan that aims to provide quality training for young people.Prime Minister relied on the Secretary of State for European Affairs to raise awareness among large companies to the importance of European mobility of apprentices. Prime Minister, in strict relationship with the Ministries concerned, asked for the implementation of a pilot project to enhance the European mobility among apprentices, which is a source of competences development, facilitating the professional insertion,.Twelve major companies responded positively to this request and met several times before making this application.During these meetings, representatives of large French groups, institutional partners, partners of the Franco-German cooperation and social partners have developed a FRANCO GERMAN PILOT PROJECT OF AN ERASMUS FOR APPRENTICES.During these meetings, several obstacles to the development of European mobility for apprentices were identified and it was decided, before generalising European mobility, to experiment in a first phase a small number of mobilities to Germany on a wide spectrum of jobs and levels. This project is expected to take place over 24 months and it concerns mobility to Germany for 54 apprentices.The Franco-German mobility was chosen as pilot project because it could rely on the expertise of both countries on cooperation, on existing resources, complementary to the Erasmus funding. In addition, the pilot project will benefit from the experience, widely recognized, of Germany in the field of apprenticeship.Reciprocity will be applied through a mirror project, submitted by the German companies with the Agency Erasmus Germany in 2017. This reciprocity will strengthen the pooling of experiences for the generalisation of the pilot.The organization in project management, the appropriate tools, the quality approach, the exploitation of results, used daily by major companies of the consortium, will be implemented in the pilot project to ensure the achievement of the objectives:• Give apprentices the best chance of inclusion in the labour market by increasing their technical, linguistic and personal skills.• Making of mobility a tool facilitating adaptation of training to the socio-economic challenges of businesses.• Promote international mobility of apprentices to facilitate their employability.• Contribute to the attractiveness of apprenticeship.• Give value to apprentices by offering them the opportunity to assert themselves and evolve in a different cultural and professional context, thus contributing to their personal development.• Encourage personal development through work and life experience in another country, to improve autonomy, curiosity, tolerance, openness and European citizenship.The success of apprentices at all levels (Level IV to Level I) in the implementation of their European mobility, as well as the effects of this mobility, will be analysed by a monitoring committee.The information issued by this monitoring committee will be validated and relayed by a steering committee. Among the component members, institutional partners will have an important role to find out how simplifying the complex regulations in order to promote the development of European mobility for apprentices, in France.The dissemination of results will mobilize all project partners, including the social partners, particularly MEDEF, and the government, first and foremost the State Secretariat for European Affairs.The observations made during the project and the improvements to the learning system will allow a generalization to other European countries.Impacts are expected on the improved perception of the Erasmus+ program by large companies and on their greater involvement in the European mobility of their apprentices.
