Links with IO4 recommendations :
· Integrate a stronger link with employers to identify the needs of companies as accurately as possible.
· Integrate significant training time in the ""field"", in a work situation.
· Plan to involve a large number of professionals in the field, to facilitate the transfer of know-how by peers.
· To work on softskills throughout the training course by means of professional situations but also by means of teaching activities inspired by project-based teaching or teaching by objectives. Through the implementation of a project, the trainees or learners are led to implement various faculties and transversal skills in a professional situation: entrepreneurial spirit, sense of organisation, rigour, search for the right information and resources, sense of teamwork, not to mention
the exploitation of a hitherto unsuspected potential which favours self-confidence and self-esteem."
