The lycée Colbert is a vocational school which educates 300 students each year in Services and Sales. The students often come from families in financial, social or cultural difficulties. The certificates that we prepare the students for are the “Baccalaureat Professionnel” (level IV certificate – 3-year course) and the “Certificat d’aptitude professionnelle” (level V certificate – 2-year course). We also prepare 40 students in alternating training for the "Brevet de Technicien Supérieur" (2 year course after the Baccalauréat / equivalent of the english Higher National Diploma).The project's objectives are to promote professional mobility, develop professional skills, improve fluency in English and Spanish and increase European cultural openess by this first experience of internship abroad. Each student discovers an opening into European citizenship while respecting some new traditions and habits different from the French ones.The establishment has been developing European mobility projects for the students for almost 20 years and many members of the staff ( managing staffand lecturers) are involved in organizing the project each year. The 2016 project will be based on a project management which integrates regularly meetings of the steering committee.
