30th September

Dear AIKB members,

Last week I accepted an invitation from Mme Jeannot to visit the adult training centre, ‘Greta’, in Carhaix.

Mme Jeannot took me round the centre to show me all the facilities available. In the past I have sent out information about the intensive French lessons geared towards becoming employed but it was really interesting to find out about all the other courses available.

These courses are open to all adult job seekers; as long as their level of French is sufficient. The courses are funded by the Région Bretagne and students receive a training allowance also financed by the Région. 

At the end of the course, students receive a professional diploma – either a CAP or a BEP which are recognised qualifications by employers.

Amongst the courses available there are:

Cuisine – training in a professionnally equipped kitchen

Crêpes – training in a professionnally equipped kitchen

Service à la personne – home-based carers - in a specially equipped apartment enabling students to learn how to care for elderly/dependant people in their own homes – food preparation, bathing, ironing, washing, baby-care, moving a person from a wheelchair to a bed…

Computer skills – in a fully equipped classroom

Driving heavy goods vehicules – this takes place at the Loudéac centre

Logistiques
Intensive French language/help with career project

It was interesting to learn that a person can do the intensive French language course, (if necessary), and then move on to do one of the more specific training courses.

If anyone would like to know more then they can either get in touch with me or contact Mme Jeannot themselves to discuss their professionnal project.

The phone number is:
02 98 93 75 77

If your French isn’t up to phoning yourself, I can call for you to arrange an appointment with an English speaker. 

WHAT'S ON?
