Une Période de Formation en Milieu Professionnel en Europe : un atout pour le développement personnel et l'aptitude à l'emploi
Start date: Jul 1, 2014, End date: Jun 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Lycée Privé Professionnel Saint-Michel in Blanquefort located in the south west of France in the Medoc area in the north of Bordeaux is a vocational school that receives around 510 students in the sectors of Food, Reception and Selling, and Health to prepare vocational qualifications of different levels (certificates of vocational aptitude, vocational Baccalauréat and additional specialization). We also have a class of 3ème and a specific unit of inclusive education for mentally disabled teenagers. Our school is of a human scale which facilitates individual education and teaching plans that allows each of our students to take an active role in shaping their own training. Our high quality education and our projects and activities aim at helping students to reconcile them with school enabling them to find a sense in the teaching, to develop intellectual curiosity, to instill a taste for success and therefore a better self-image and self-esteem. In this context, our European projects do need to be part of the implementation of our school project. We plan to send 30 students in the final year of Baccalauréat Professionnel in Catering, Restaurant Servicing and Reception and Selling in Norway, Spain and the Republic of Ireland for 5 weeks from 16th March to 17th April 2015. The first 4 days the students will be proposed cultural activities and the discovery of their daily environment and the next 4 weeks they will be placed in restaurants and service organizations. They will be then able to use English or Spanish in real situation and discover new ways to practice their future job. This experience will foster their professional skills and their employability in Europe. As for their personal future, the students will find their own independence, autonomy, self-confidence and open-mindedness which compose their ability to build their adulthood. The young French student will have a very clear idea of what being a responsible European citizen today involves in a Europe in which democracies will benefit from a better knowledge of each other.
