The guidance counsellor service

STUDENTS ARE INVOLVED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THEIR CAREER PLAN

The guidance service is managed by an Information and Guidance Resource Staff (PRIO) who assists students in their choices and the steps they need to take to pursue their studies in higher education. The PRIO also works in conjunction with the head teachers (professeurs principaux) and the families. Each year the school defines a programme of actions orientation related for students and families: informative meetings, career fairs, college fairs, individual counselling, professional speed-dating, interest questionnaires, resume writing, etc.

AGORA

To help them make their choices, students have access to the AGORA platform, a collaborative network of high school students and former students of the AEFE. Agora brings together French high schools from all over the world and is dedicated to orientation.

AGORA is:

  • A directory: search for former AEFE students. Contact students from other French schools abroad.
  • A forum: to enable high school students to communicate with each other and to exchange with former students in order to benefit from their experiences and build a career plan or find out about student life in France or abroad.
  • An experiences’ sharing space with geolocated students profiles.
  • Interviews: read and view testimonials from former students about their studies and careers

THE “PARCOURS AVENIR”

The “Parcours Avenir” enables students from the sixth to the final year of secondary school to progressively build up a real competence in orientation throughout their studies. To do this, students are encouraged to understand the economic and professional world and to learn about the diversity of trades and training, to develop their sense of commitment and initiative, and to draw up their educational and professional orientation project.
