From September 4th to October 9th, AFORMAC Europe welcomes 8 Italian trainees, aged 17 to 18, and their teachers from central Italy. They are all in their last year of high school at the ITE Scarpellini of Foligno in the tourism sector.
They are welcomed in host families and do an internship in a hotel (Hotel Campanile Lyon Center Perrache), a language school (ALPADIA, EICLE or INFLEXYON), a museum (Le Petit Musée de Guignol) or within the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Lyon. This total immersion in France will allow them to improve their language level, but also to acquire professional and personal skills such as autonomy. They will also discover French culture and the Lyon region.
These internships are co-financed by the European program ERASMUS + (air tickets, accommodation, supervision, etc.) and will enable them to obtain an EUROPASS Mobility certificate which lists the skills acquired within the framework of a European mobility.
As a reminder, AFORMAC Europe is a training organization with associative status that has been working for many years in favor of the development of European mobility, particularly in the field of vocational training. After placing young people in families and firms and organizing their stay, AFORMAC Europe is in charge of their follow up and the link with their school, their teachers, their company and their host family.
We wish them all a very good stay in Lyon!
