Internships abroad in the frame of vocational training (field of non-formal education, youth and sports)

The “JEPS international” dynamic aims to provide a European mobility experience for staff and learners of vocational training in the field of YOUTH, NON-FORMAL EDUCATION AND SPORT (“JEPS” is the acronym used in French). 


Hors Pistes is coordinating a consortium currently comprising 8 schools of vocational training which are providing schooling and certificates called “BPJEPS” and “CPJEPS”. Together we plan the development of international mobility within their pedagogical program. In total, the departure of 9 promotions is planned between September 2021 and the end of June 2022.


Hors Pistes is ensuring the supervision on the logistics, administrative and pedagogical  modalities of the mobilities and the coordination between the training organisations of the region and the international partners, for the implementation of these mobilities.


A trainer from Hors Pistes intervenes for a workshop to prepare the interns for departure, with each promotion for logistical intercultural and linguistic preparation; as well as for an evaluation in the end of the mobility. These workshops are conducted according to the methods of popular education. 


This dynamic is conducted in partnership with the French State (Minister of youth and sport), the Sud Region (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur) and Eurocircle association, brought together in a steering committee. This partnership facilitates the integration of these mobilities in the pedagogical programs of the training courses concerned. 


The mobilities are financed by the European Union by the Erasmus+ program
