It is difficult to sustain their motivation for their 3 -year degree.This project is a solid tool to allow students to improve their foreign language skills, to deepen and diversify their professional skills. They are more likely to engage in learning and have a long-term motivation.This project relies on an active collaboration between our high school and the Guineueta from Barcelona school. The Europass curriculums of the students who take part in the mobility are sent to the partner school, and the Guineueta high school is in charge of finding participants a company which corresponds to their profile. As far as we are concerned, we provide The Guineueta School our network of local car companies to welcome their students involved in the mobility process. The project of European mobility “Raimu fait sa M.E.CA” is part of a policy of European openness in our school. The expected results for the high school Raimu are of different kinds: Indeed, it means: - Making the partnership between the Spanish Guineueta high school and the French “Maison de l’Europe” durable.- Developing our network of car companies in Nîmes and Barcelona- Internationalizing educational practicesThrough this mobility, participants will acquire a greater autonomy, self confidence, and additional ambition at school and in their professional project.
