Vallée 3 is group project for vocational mobility organized at regional level in the Academy of Grenoble for vocational trainees.
The acronym VALLEE 3, meaning Enhancing Autonomy, Language skills Locally and in Europe, well describes the geographical situation of the academy of Grenoble, being located in the middle of mountains where “Vallée” is a passage to somewhere else.
The project gathers 21 private and public vocational schools. These schools train their students in the service sector as well as in the industrial sector.
The High schools are located in the 5 counties in the academy of Grenoble. It is a vast part of the Rhône-Alpes region, border with Italy, passage to Eastern Europe, tourist centre and European crossroads for commerce and industry.
There are 474 high school students (in second or final year) who will benefit from Vallée 3. They have a common need to add a European value to their training so as to get better access from school to real life. They will be monitored by 130 teachers.
In their future professional life, these young people will have to deal with various foreign customers and they need to increase their language and professional skills in several European countries
The project lead is the GIP-FIPAG, public interest grouping for the academy of Grenoble, dealing mainly with financial management of the project.
