APRECA is a private in-service adult education organisation created in 1990. Its European vocation emerged first, through its language teaching department as a University of Cambridge examination centre for the Regions of Champagne-Ardenne and Bourgogne, Pilot Centre in France for the DIRECT ENGLISH method developed by the PEARSON group) and since 1991, through the European mobility programme EURODYSSEE.

APRECA has developed its know-how through European programmes as LEONARDO DA VINCI, ADAPT, ADAPT/STEER. Thanks to this experience and a huge network of European partners, APRECA is willing to put its know-how at the disposal of the different public authorities and in this way to be a “logistic platform” in the European transnational programmes.

APRECA has offices in the regions of Ile-de-France, Champagne-Ardenne and Bourgogne and this has allowed the development of an extensive network of hosting companies in a wide range of activity sectors and this is a key factor in being able to find appropriate solutions and outcomes to meet the specific requirements of our European partners.

Since 1990, our organisation has been actively involved with the management of European work placement programs. To date, we have organised mobility projects for more than 15,000 trainees (VET learners, job seekers, apprentices and students). 

Working with a wide network of European partners such as local authorities, private companies and educational establishments, we arrange work placements for French trainees all over Europe and also manage the hosting in France of trainees from other European countries. 

We regularly participate in projects and / or partnerships with the aim of improving the quality of our processes. For example, APRECA is also a member of the French Expert mobility network, managed by the French Erasmus+ Agency as is recognised as an official 'mobility developer'.

Bruno Danjou, Sophie Labelle and Olivier Grappin who will contribute to this project are highly qualified professionals with considerable practical experience of international projects. Each year they manage over 700 work placement projects of between 3 weeks and 6 months in duration for VET learners, job seekers, apprentices and students. Bruno Danjou was a Leonardo evaluator with the French National Agency.
