WORK PLACEMENTS

We cooperate with many companies in our region which allows us to secure placements for students/graduates in various sectors. Basing on analysis of studies and profile we will provide for each participant an appropriate work placement. 

Before the arrival participants will be asked to fill some documents to enable us preparing the most adequate work placement. We will invite students to create Europass CV and motivation letter to visualize us some of their professional interests. It´s important to point out that the participant’s level of English or German, positive attitude and willingness to get involved in the daily work will be very important to achieve success in work placement.

The working days depend on the professional sector, in general the participants work from Monday to Friday except for the touristic sector in which the participants may also work during weekends. The weekly working time won`t exceed 40 hours and in most sectors it will be 8 hours per day. The working time in Poland is usually continuous, only with a short lunch break.

During the work placement the tutor will regularly supervise the participants and support them in case of any inconvenience. At the end of the work placement period, the company will give a certificate to the participant and the Europass Mobility Certificate detailing the tasks and skills achieved by the participant in the company.

Each participant  will receive three certificates after the internship:

  • Europass Mobility Certificate fulfilled and signed by the hosting company,
