About This Project

Twenty young and enthusiastic Polish students came to the beautiful city of Sevilla in the hope of improving their professional skills and learning new life experiences in the process. During their month-long stay, the students are educated in four different workfields – tourism, gastronomy, hospitality and paper industry techniques – for which they are employed in very distinct working environments.

Their main tasks included the following:

  • Providing an efficient housekeeping service, e.g. vacuuming, cleaning, dusting and polishing
  • Laying the table, putting dishes and cutlery in accordance with the principles of savoir vivre
  • Providing an efficient housekeeping service, e.g. vacuuming, cleaning, dusting and polishing
  • Carrying out administrative  duties  such  as  segregation  of  documents  and  business cards, entering invoices to database, filling the documents etc.
  • Providing high quality customer service
  • Estimating food needs, reviewing inventory to assure that adequate supplies are available
  • Assisting in coordinating food service activities to have meals prepared at scheduled time
  • Getting to know tasks like archiving data, performance of administrative duties related to customer service

All the trainees across the four different sectors have contributed as best as they could to try and successfully complete their traineeship. There was plenty of time left for the youngsters to explore the beautiful city of Sevilla, as well as its surrounding cities as they all enjoyed cultural trips to Cordoba and Cádiz.

PARTICIPANTS’ OPINIONS

Patrycja Śnieda:

‘I worked in a hotel as a waitress. People who worked with me were always helpful. Despite my poor linguistic skills in Spanish, we managed to communicate without any major problems. This experience has been great for me, since I love this kind of work.’

Paulina Michalska:

‘People who have worked with me are very nice and polite. They helped me and explained new things. They showed me how to wear a lot of glasses in one hand or how to prepare different types of coffee. It’s a great place. I learned a lot of interesting things here, which I can use in future.’
