What we do

Pedagogical directors decided to develop the last of the 4 dimensions on Student Support/Guidance: transition to employment – MAILLONS 04.


October 2017 – Auch

The aim of the workshop was to reflect on the influence of the problem of professional integration of students/young artists in the construction of educational programmes.

To start the reflection, the leaders of the group DIRECTORS invited a former student from FEDEC school to tell his own story about professional integration. The exchange allowed the participants to lay the foundation and questions of that new topic.

The pedagogical directors then discussed their difficulties and their respective arrangements for employability within their own school.
4 major axes emerged from those discussions:

  1. the student
  2. the school
  3. the market i.e. working environment
  4. the artistic dimension


The workshop allowed an active participation of members through discussion and exchanges of best practices, sharing and disseminating applied resources.

A lot of information were gathered which will serve formulating recommendations over 2018-2020.
