Dear Sir, Dear Miss,
We are a team of teachers from the north of France, at Jacquard High School in Caudry (“lycée Jacquard” if you want to make a web research) and we have built an Erasmus project because we want our students to improve their mobility and their professional experience abroad.
With the team of teachers, we prepare our students for a professional diploma, the equivalent of the B-Tech and they have training periods to do during their three-year curriculum.
Since 3 years, we sent some students in Mechanical Engineering for one month training period in Sussex, in firms like NovaRacing, Travine, Venture Engineering Precision, DSA Products for example…
You could see some pictures of these trips on our web site by this link: http://www.lyceecaudry.fr/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=148&Itemid=266
As I said, our project is linked to the Erasmus one. The training period is free. Erasmus give us some fees to rent a car, rent a cottage, pay the food and do some cultural trips during the training period. A teacher stay with the students, they are never alone. We live with them, drop off the pupils and we pick up them at the firms at the end of the day. By this way we keep the link between the firm and us all the month long.
This year, we want to develop this opportunity with a group of IT system students.
4 of them are motivated to go to UK. With my colleagues, we went many times in Sussex to find new partners and we have found two companies to welcome two of them: ABCOM IT Solutions in Burgess Hill and a PC Repair company in Brighton.
We knocked at every door because we are very determined but, today, after many days of research, we still need 2 more partners. We called and wrote to many firms near Haywards Heath (where the house is that we will rent) but unfortunately, we still haven’t found a positive answer.
It’s now a little bit urgent because these are the dates of the next training periods for our students in IT: from January 7th to February 1st (4 weeks).
We have found a cottage, a car and have some fees to let them do this great experience. They are very motivated so we just need two more firms which would trust us and help us to finalize the project.
They are 16 or 17, they are in the second level of their three year diploma and they are in an European section. They work in different fields in Electronics:
– Audiovisual and multimedia installation
– Professional audiovisual installation
– Electricity ( they are trained in electrical habilitation )
– Home appliance installation
– Domestic installation
– Computer installation ( hardware and software )
– Network installation ( computer network, telephone network, video network )
– Security installation (alarm, video protection, access control …)
They already have a six weeks period experience in a French IT company.
If you are interested to welcome one or two of our students in January please let me know. It would be great to work with you!
We are available at any time if you have any questions. You can contact us to +33686622645 (Fanny mobile number) and by email at email@example.com
Thank you for your time and consideration.

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
