Vers l'ouverture à l'international
Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

One of the five missions of Agricultural Education in France is to develop an international cooperation strategy. It is mainly aimed at contributing to the exercice of citizenship, broadening the cultural and linguistic horizons, providing a wider personal and professional scope thanks to the mobility approach, training professionals who will be aware of international stakes and building an open and dynamic European educational area. Those themes are not only conveyed at a regional level through the project of the Agricultural Education in the area « Pays de la Loire », but also at a local level through the educational establishment project of the Public Educational Technological and Agricultural High School, ( EPLFPA ) of La Germinière. The Agricultural High School is situated 5 kms from a 150000-inhabitants-city. Our catchment area covers a hundred kilometers (not many local pupils). The students come from 40% of family workers and employeesIn our educational establishment our involvement in close international cooperation leads to :- One-week learners and apprentice mobilities ; - Professional placements abroad for our learners.This mobility program involves 11 members of our school. Among them some teachers want to update and perfect their knowledge in English or German ; others want to innovate and enhance their teaching skills and practices; and a last party wants to improve their English communication skills in order to deal efficiently with foreign partners. As a first step , the different members of the staff assessed their levels and looked for training organisations corresponding to their needs. After their training abroad, some teachers will be assessed to receive the required certification to be able to teach a non-linguistic subject in English (B2 level required). Taking part in mobility programs for education and training purposes entails several short-term objectives :- Introducing a « European Section » in our general sections : Technological A’ Level and Sciences A'Level. We expect to attract local pupils.- Strengthening and developping the professional placements abroad of our technological and vocational learners ; our objective being to send 25 learners per year on periods ranging from 4 to 10 weeks.- Provide cultural and professional opening learners
