Sending AFORMAC trainers and prescribers
AFORMAC’s international strategy also aims to support professionals in the development of their skills or their network by enabling them to benefit from ERASMUS + European mobility grants.
The principle : To meet other companies, other training centres, to understand the working methods and the professional organization in Europe, to identify common points, to learn from our differences, to improve our practices and to develop our partnership network in Europe !
AFORMAC regularly accompanies tutors of companies hosting trainees, or wishing to host trainees, and its employees, in study visits to our international partners. We regularly organize visiting projects by sector of activity (Hospitality, Sanitary and Social, Digital …), to the United Kingdom, Greece, Germany, and according to the priorities of the year.
Funding generally covers travel and subsistence costs, depending on the destination and content of the visits.
