Promouvoir la Mobilité professionnelle en Europe
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Our vocational school includes several sectors, two of them this year, are affected by this mobility project. These are the sectors of Digital and Electronic Systems as well as Crafts and Fashion. These two areas are part of an economic context character-ized by the globalization of trade and competitiveness. That is why we must constantly improve the skills and performances of our students by encouraging their motivation, by opening up to other cultural and professional backgrounds and giving them extended powers to the European labor market.
Students involved in the project are preparing a professional degree ( baccalaureat professionnel) and following a three –year course. Besides the opportunity to enrich their professional knowledge and develop their language skills, these mobilities enable students to acquire knowledge, thanks to which they develop a spirit of openness, coping skills and communication that will promote their success.
Similarly, teachers in these sectors are eager to acquire a culture expanded to Eu-rope, crossing glances on issues related to common pathways, but in different social and economic context, and finally develop the acquisition of new personal and pro-fessional skills.
One of the strong points of our school plan is a commitment to openness to Europea s we have been involved since 2009.
We have a European Section in Fashion and Crafts where some technological and vocational courses are taught in English and Spanish and languages courses are fostered. The possibility of a European mobility provides an opening and a major enrichment to the success of this section.
Therefore, after several years of experience of European mobility and projects, we gradually learnt to work hand in hand with our partners abroad, agencies schools and businesses and we all acquired a mutual trust in one another.
This allows us to consider various periods of mobility:
Firstly, a 5 weeks mobility as work placements are now being considered as part of the curriculum - for 20 students taking a vocational baccalauréat in October-November 2016.
Teachers who will assess these periods of work placement wish to visit the companies and their students in order to better perceive the expectations of the European labor market and meet new skills and ways of working. They also want to meet with intermediary organizations to establish a sustainable cooperation.
- Then mobilities in partner schools over 2 weeks for pupils at the end of first or second school year during the two years of the project.This year's exchange with a Croatian school and 6 students from the fashion sector and their teacher coming to visit us have showed us how rich and intense a partnership can be. We would like in turn to live the same experience and therefore have a group of students from our fashion european classes go and visit our partner school in Spain and another one to our partner school in Cakovec, Croatia.
Accompanying teachers exchange their practices and ways of working with their foreign colleagues and put forward good practices, compare their respective methods, compare the level required for the various degrees .It will be a source of innovation and will allow teachers to improve their skills. They will also be able to visit businesses highlighting what industry, economy and employment is today and may be in the coming years in the welcoming country.
All these aspects constitute the major goals of our project.
