Meeting with Aurélie Bourneau, 42, specialist in the management of social economy organizations

What is your background?

For fifteen years I have accompanied elderly people with disabilities to FAM Saint-Nicolas de Pradelles as an assistant to a medical psychologist.

Wishing to acquire new skills and discover a different audience, I completed the VAE (Validation des Acquis de l’Expérience) as an Instructor-Teacher and then trained as a Project Coordinator, a position that I was able to fill for 3 years in another associations.

On October 1, 2020, I joined the FAM de Rosières multidisciplinary team, first as a personal project manager, and from April 2021 as a local manager (permanent employee).

Why did you choose the GOES course?

I found content in this program that allows me to train in the management of SSE organizations, in project management, in order to be able to design, organize and evaluate the actions of economic and social activities. What I especially appreciate is the method of learning around the project, which allows you to very quickly bring together the theory of the courses and their practical application. But also knowledge of the social economy and the economy of solidarity through public policy, theory and SSE participants.

Show us your organization

FAM in Rosières accepts 40 adults with multiple disabilities that combine motor and/or intellectual disabilities. In June 2020, the institution became the property of the Saint Nicholas Association.

The Résidence Saint-Nicolas Association manages 11 establishments located in Lozère, Haute-Loire and Cantal, which host 370 residents. Its purpose is to support any adult with or without an intellectual disability, with or without a motor disability, with or without mental illness (moderate and stable), who is no longer able to work or has never worked. His main goal is to preserve as long as possible the autonomy he has acquired during his life, improve it whenever possible and accompany him to the end of his life in a serene, warm atmosphere, emotional and dynamic.

What project are you working on?

I joined the interdisciplinary FAM team to implement an association policy in connection with my career. The topic of my project is called “Rethinking and defining quality social and educational provision within the structure.”

After a complete diagnosis, a strategy was defined in three main areas:

– Develop support customization

– Professionalization of actors in this area

– Tailor the FAM architecture to the needs of residents

To implement various activities, we have identified the necessary resources, in particular, for adaptation of the architecture, the purpose of which is to get the job done at a lower cost.

What advice would you give to people who want to take this course?

This training requires a large investment, a large amount of work and regular work that must be given back. The support of the IRUP Grande Ecole de l’Alternance is an added benefit to keep you in the right rhythm of learning at all times.
