Vocational Trainees and graduates

After graduating from vocational training

Working abroad is a wish that many people in vocational training share. Doing a work placement in another country after graduating is the perfect opportunity to gain work experience in your field of expertise, to learn a foreign language, to broaden your horizons and to find out what you want to do with your life.

Work placements for vocational trainees

Not only graduates but also trainees who are still enrolled in a vocational training course can go abroad and integrate an internship in Europe into their apprenticeship. Employers look favorably upon individuals who went abroad to improve their foreign language skills and gain experience in a different cultural and professional context. With the consent of your trainer, we will gladly inform you of all the options available to you.

Work placements for persons in advanced training

Even professionals never stop learning. Doing a graduate internship abroad gives you a chance to get to know the working routine of other professionals and to gain valuable new perspectives. The international exchange of experiences and knowledge is really a win-win-situation for all parties involved. We would be happy to help you find a meaningful work placement abroad.

Learn a language

A language course represents an ideal addition to your international work placement. You can improve your French, Spanish or Portuguese by taking a theoretical class and applying your new knowledge directly in a work context. Thus your language skills correspond to a professional level and relate to your field of expertise.
