PRIO (Information and Orientation Resource Person)

PRIO’s main goal is to follow up students on their professional guidance process, during the 11th and the 12th years. 
For 11th year students, it is important to start thinking about the “Post-Bac” project, for example, getting information about different university degrees and choosing the “spécialité” courses they want to keep on the 12th year. 
On 12th year, it is important to complete the professional guidance project and to start thinking about a strategy to apply for university degrees. 

To achieve this, several measures are implemented on the 11th and 12th years:
•    Presenting Higher Education systems – not only French but also Portuguese – (to the students and their families);
•    Presenting the “Parcoursup” online platform and helping students with their application process, namely during enrolment, selection and confirmation of the degrees they want, writing the students explanation of their reasons to apply for a certain degree or university, and defining priorities for the selected degrees;
•    Professional guidance interviews with 11th and 12th years students;
•    Meetings with former students; 
•    Conferences with several Higher Education representatives;
•    Visits to Universities, participation in “Portas Abertas” programs;
•    Participation in career guidance events
