Our Internships, Work Experience and
Volunteerism projects can last from
four weeks to 12 months, targeted
at students ages 15-35. We can
accommodate cohorts of up to 20
students at a time - larger groups
are divided into seasonal flows.
Our dedicated beneficiary welfare
officers and tutors serve as a liaison
between the intern and the host
company to resolve any problems
that might arise in the work
environment, and all students
receive a certificate and Europass
upon successful completion of the
programme. While most of our
placements are with local organizations
and businesses, we are specialists in
English-language and German-language
placements in international working
environments and the use of technology,
for working in digital environments.
VETPRO programming is directed
toward faculty and staff as professional
development and relationship-building
exercises with colleagues and peers. A
VETPRO project is first and foremost
a journey that enhances skills while
accessing best practices and
innovation to take back to a participant's
country of origin and put into practice.
Projects involving professional or
technical visits are conducted in English
with an interpreter available to translate
from Spanish or Catalan presentations
given by the host company. Groups are
limited to 20 participants.Trade Missions
can be organised for participants from
most countries, regardless of member-
ship in the EU or EEA.
Internships and other work experiences including volunteerism in the nonprofit sector,
support experiential learning, where students can apply the skills they learn in the
classroom in a real-world setting.
VETPRO projects address the needs of faculty and staff to update their skills
in order to guide their students and other beneficiaries in both
formal and informal learning environments
