The EU-funded, three-year lasting Erasmus + project "Fit For Work in Europe" offered forty students from Hungary, Poland, France, Spain and Germany the opportunity to present and to discuss their project results in a joint meeting from May 28 to June 4, 2016 .
On Saturday 28th May, the project participants of the different countries met in Paris and explored together the French capital. An evening boat cruise on the Seine with a spectacular view on the illuminated Eiffel Tower and other famous sights, was one of the "highlights" of the weekend. On Sunday, after a six-hours bus ride, the project group reached its twin city Hennebont in Brittany, where they were already awaited by their host families.
During the project week the French partner school, the "Lycée Victor Hugo", provided a very varied and interesting program to the project participants - teaching internships as observers, sightseeing and visiting the Museum of the "East India Company" in the citadel of Port-Louis, the old town of Quimper and a walk by the sea with "Moule et frites".
In international workshops the pupils worked out the existing imbalances, pitfalls and factors of success (strength and weakness) of the different national job markets and presented their findings in English in a PowerPoint presentation and on wall posters. The French partner school presented its evaluation of the questionnaire to the mobility of students on the European job market. As part of the project week a self-designed project flyer was chosen by the students and a French course was held.
The eventful week ended with a reception of the project group in the town hall Hennebont, a trip to a climbing park and an impressive farewell party with hip-hop and traditional Breton folk and dance music.
Unfortunately, it was time to say goodbye after a very eventful week - at least until meeting again at the next Erasmus event in November in Tarragona!
