Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance and the Association «ViensVoirMonTaf » (ComeSeeMyWork) supporting the students of Roubaix.

Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance and the Association « ViensVoirMonTaf » have got together in support of the 14 to 15-year-old pupils from priority education areas at the Anne Frank College in Roubaix, France.
An internship week of observations was transformed into professional « Entrepreneurship » workshops for 19 motivated students.

It was a fruitful week.

Unable to welcome the pupils to their Roubaix site due to Covid restictions, Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance nonetheless kept their promise to students finding themselves without internships by introducing them to the Group’s business and trade realm, through fun-packed, didactic workshops and presentations.

From 8th to 12th February the 19 participants were given the opportunity to create a small enterprise of 3 to 5 pupils while working with professionals from CA Consumer Finance in several workshops on Budget, Customer Negotiation, Human Resources and Communication. Through various role-plays our participants experienced real-life situations such as a bank appointment to request project funding or a job interview.

To close the week representatives of the town of Roubaix, the school heads and members of Crédit Agricole presented the college participants with a certificate.

Year 10 internships – a life-changing experience.

Just another workshop? Far from it. The year-10 internship can be a life-changing experience. One student out of two says they found an occupation they liked following an internship with « Viensvoirmontaf ». One in four says they found their vocation.
