During their stay, student implemented 80 hours internship program in Greek, well-known companies. Hospitality Technician worked in San Pantaleimon Hotel, IT Technician worked in Wizcom OE, and Logistics Technician worked in Asos Karagiannis Sales & Logistics. Thanks to engagement of their mentors it was great opportunity to increase their chances on the labour market in the future. First of all they learned how to behave in real work-space and work under a pressure of time. Those are really experience which can be gained by having workshops in school. What is more, thay had opportunity to use or test skills and knowledge which they received from the school. They could also get some new which was also accomplished. To sum up, they got new experience, knowledge and skills which can’t be taken from school which is big added value of the project.

Work and learning were essential part of mobility, but there were also some fun and different kind of experience, also useful. Cultural programe created opportunity to get to know Greece better.

History and culture of our country is not difficult for them anymore. It was also very important part of the project, which impacted students a lot. Especially that part of them have never been abroad.

On the end of the mobility, we distributed project’s certificates. They will help participants in looking for a job in the future.  We also took part in the evaluation, which showed that project were not only well-planned, but also well-implemented.
