The themes are:
Theme 1 Environment, education and the world of work
Theme 2 Music, media, customs and traditions
The students are also given the opportunity to do work experience in France.
A good pass at A level gives access to university and offers a valuable qualification in the world of work. A language is becoming more and more important in today’s world where business frontiers are disappearing throughout the European Union. Many past students have gone on to study degree courses in either pure French or a variety of interesting courses which combine a language with other subjects such as accountancy, law, banking and finance, business, journalism and the media. They can then work for a company with international links, or work abroad and have more fun when travelling abroad.
