Section européenne et valorisation des compétences professionnelles et linguistiques
Start date: 01 Jul 2016, End date: 30 Jun 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Over a number of years our students taking the BTEC National - catering option - have the opportunity to be sent abroad during a five-week training period in the United Kingdom, so that they are able to take – and pass – the Europro certification. The first ERASMUS+ grant that we have received have allowed us to send more students abroad to get a rich experience. Today, we wish to perpetuate that situation and to continue our project by the opening of a European section in English next academic year. Our aims are to: 1. Improve language skillsHelp with the learning of understanding and speaking communication situations, particularly in the professional fields. At school they have lessons with the English teacher and the professional ones before the departure / leaving.Test their professional skills and achievement on the spot and on their return with the Europro Certification Exam. This exam is a real plus when they apply for a job. Employers look for such qualifications. Help our students to get up to B1 European level to pass the English oral test to get the BTEC National. 2. Encourage our students to get a job abroad and dicover a new country. Discover a new culture through citizenship, personal enrichment and world understanding.Boost students coming from a rural environment in sending them abroad for a first work experience. It would help them to become more independent and responsible. 3. Improve our school coursesOpen up a European section in English (for catering students, service option)Promote our vocational courses, improve and help the development of our vocational high school among employers in our area. 4.Support students' ambition and thus increase the access to higher education (BTEC Higher National diploma, for example)Motivate young people again, add value to their professional educational background, slow down failure at school and the early school leaving without any diplomas, or to fight xenophobia.5. Develop partnerships between our vocational high school and the hotel companies to ensure the project existence.
