Since 2002, the « Maisons Familiales Rurales” secondary school for vocational training of Rhône-Alps hatutors been promoting mobility projects for its apprentices, staff and internship tutors/mentors. It wishes it could offer them the opportunity to get opened up to other cultures and to enrich their professional practices.
In 2014, 11 schools will be involved in our project: Bonne sur Menoge, La Balme de Sillingy, La Grive, Péronnas, Vulbens. Margencel, Cruseilles IMAA et Les Ebeaux, Sallanches « Le Clos des bas, Saint André le Gaz « Le Chalet » and Saint Martin en Haut. 5 of them sign up to sending 105 students abroad for a 3-week work experience and 7 will organize a one-week stay for members of their staff in the United Kingdom and Finland. La Balme de Sillingy is involved on both programs
Background and needs: Apprentices are young girls and boys aged from 15 to 20. They often come from rural areas, they attend a vocational training (vocational A levels), sometimes in a European section. Because they are young and rooted to their place of living, they are not used to going far from it especially in an international context and without their parents. That’s why we included in our training plans this mobility that would enable participants to increase their autonomy, to accept others, to develop intercultural skills, and self-confidence.
Students involved in this program prepare a Vocational high school diploma. Four vocational fields are concerned: trade, customer service, administrative management and horticulture. From a professional point of view, the European training aims at enriching the CV in order to make it easier for the apprentices to find a job after their studies. Indeed during three weeks they will be included in a foreign company, they will discover new working methods and equipment, techniques and tools. They will be able to compare them to the one they usually use in France, in a reflexive approach. We expect that, in a total immersion context, they could become more flexible, and also develop their linguistic skills
A working plan in the host country has been defined by each school. According to the education reference document, the project managers negotiate the training contents together with the internships’ supervisors before the stay. In our project, students will first observe the activities in their work placement then they will gradually participate to the usual tasks concerning administrative management, parks and gardens maintenance or trading.
Adult beneficiaries are teachers (technical or general subjects), school leaders, education staff, and internship supervisors. They plan to go to United Kingdom and Finland to discover another education system, new monitoring and pedagogical knowledge. They also wish to study work practices in professional fields such as health and social care, administrative management in the UK and car maintenance in Finland. The European mobility could also be an opportunity to strengthen the place of internship supervisors concerning design of training modules and to reinforce partnerships.
From the beginning of its involvement in the European programs for the mobility of the youngster, the « Maisons Familiales Rurales” training center of Rhône-Alps sets up a procedure to follow the progress and to assess its group projects.
Usually we expect the mobility projects to have positive impacts on all actors involved in our education program. Concerning students, we hope that thanks to this first experience of mobility, they wish to become opened up to others countries and get new opportunities to work or travel abroad. As far as the staff is concerned, professionals wish to improve their teaching and mentoring methods or develop youth integration in our vocational education. For schools the involvement in Europeans program is a way to make the MFR and its block-release trainings more attractive.
Finally our previous experiences showed us that when they came back to their employers (employer?), apprentices were more self-confident, more autonomous so more efficient than before experiencing mobility. That’s why we make constant efforts to make our projects durable, trying to offer to all of our beneficiaries, good quality stays.
