S'ouvrir au monde et aux autres, le véritable ADN du CFTA de Montfort sur Meu
Opening up to the world and to others, CFTA’s true DNA
For many years, the CFTA allows its students to go abroad. In Bac, BTS or Licence, the adventure awaits you !
Internships abroad in BAC PRO
At the CFTA, the 1st year students go abroad for one month to experience a work placement in immersion on a farm. The CFTA helps them to find farms abroad, thanks to its strong international experience and a network of partners ready to welcome the students. In this year 2022-2023, the students went to Finland and Ireland.
International internships in BTS ACSE
At the CFTA, the BTS ACSE 1st year students in initial formation go abroad for 6 months to a farm/organisation of their choice. A genuine immersion in the heart of a country and its agriculture, the students come back grown up and open to new ways of working. Thanks to this internship, the students open up to new professional and personal cultures, leading them to question the expertise and skills they acquired in France. This immersion abroad continues into the 2nd year, as the students create videos about their international experience.
After their time abroad, the students receive a EUROPASS certificate, signed by the school and the internship superviser. It showcases the degree/the internship and the skills acquired and thus facilitates the process of recruitment and further studies.
International openness at the CFTA
Opening up to the world and to others is a fundamental value of the MFR network, to which the CFTA belongs. During their experiences abroad, the students learn, question and see the differences in the world but also the complexity of their jobs in the agricultural sector. Indeed, agriculture all over the world has the same goal but there are differences linked to the soil’s resources, the type of land and the level of industrialisation in each society. Throughout these profesional immersion experiences, these realities are questioned.
