CFP Famenne-Ardenne: Professional Training Centre

CFP Famenne-Ardenne

Marche-en-Famenne, Belgium

The application deadline has passed.

Project description

We mainly expect from our ESC volunteer to accompany, support and help our technical trainers in organizing and leading all the trainings (professional cleaning, laundry, car wash, gardening, agriculture…) we offer to our public. At the beginning the volunteer will take the time to discover all what we do in CFP and then s/he will choose the activities s/he will be more interested in! The volunteer will have many practical learning opportunities. Her/his work in CFP will be mostly practical/manual. For example, by taking part in our trainings of ‘gardening and agriculture’ the volunteer will learn about the techniques of preparation of soils, seeding and plantations; taking part in the training ‘blanchisserie’ s/he will learn how to run professional laundry and ironing activities and so on… No matter which activities the volunteer will chose to do, s/he will for sure acquire skills in working with disabled and disadvantaged people.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteer will be hosted in a house that s/he will share with other people. The house will be located in the centre of Marche-en-Famenne and will have all the modern facilities. The volunteer will receive a monthly allowance and will take care of the meals by herself/himself.

Training during the project

When arrived in Belgium, the volunteer will take part in the on-arrival and mid-term seminars organized by the French speaking National Agency.

Volunteer profile

Our project is open to anybody motivated by volunteering and who wishes to be involved in our organisation, regardless to his/her nationality, religion, believes, diploma, professional experience. Because our public doesn’t speak any other language than French, we require that the volunteer have some basic skills in communicating in French. We expect the volunteer to be open to the difference and ready to build an atmosphere of confidence and security with the centre users; be ready to involve him/herself in the several tasks we do with them; be able to work together with the staff.
