Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project will take place in Dublin in Ireland during the month of November in 2015. It addresses students in their final year of vocational school. The project is managed by a team of teachers composed of two technical teachers, an English teacher and a Maths teacher who have already taken part in 6 Leonardo projects in Ireland and one in Spain. The other organizing team is composed of the headmaster, the accountant, the "chef des travaux" and of the person in charge of the project who is part of both teams so as to make sure everything is well- coordinated. The aim of the project is twofold: on the one hand it aims at allowing the participants to put into practice their professional skills, to develop and improve them. On the second hand it aims at improving their knowledge and practice in English by making them aware of the necessity of this language to communicate and exchange on a personal and professional level. The beneficiaries are 24 students out of a class of 30 in final year of vocational school in Digital Electronic Systems. They have all proved extremely motivated, and have given great satisfaction during their work placement in French companies. Two teachers will be in Dublin: one during the first two weeks, the other during the last two weeks. on their internship period. The host partner Emerald Cultural Institute provides the host families, the English courses, and organizes the week end in the Connemara. During the first week, the students will attend English courses. In the afternoon, their English teacher from France will organize cultural visits, will take them to the Connemara for a cultural week- end and will coordinate their arrival on their workplacement in their host company. The next three weeks the students will attend their host company. They will be visited and assessed by their technical teacher from France in their host company during the last two weeks. Thanks to our previous experiences we look after the host companies ourselves (20 companies we've previously worked with have already agreed on taking our students and have helped us find 8 other companies which have agreed orally on taking more students). Erasmus projects are essential to our developping and to our opening to the world. Thanks to this experience, the students will have improved their English, they will be more autonomous, and will have improved their adaptability profesionally speaking. Their self- esteem will be valued by this european experience. Quite reknown and well regarded, such an experience will be a real asset for their further education. It will help them find a job and will expand the student's mobility area to Europe when looking for a job. He won't be afraid by the prospect of going abroad to find a job.
