Collaborative Professional Orientation Initiative

How does it work?

In a first step, it is necessary to want, then, it is desirable to organize with the help proposed by our device and, finally, it is advisable to inform / motivate the young people.

The proposed approach begins with a presentation of the skills required to fit into and evolve in the companies / organizations of today and tomorrow. Then, it is proposed to young people to initiate and complete a project that will lead them to meet partners and negotiate with clients outside the institution.

They will lead a project in the most autonomous way possible. This entrepreneurial experience will allow them to gain experience even if everything does not work as expected. It will end with a review of skills acquired and the choice of career guidance.

They will use modern and innovative methods and tools already used by the most advanced companies (web 3.0, collaborative work, use of networks, risk management, etc.).
