About This Project

For a period of three weeks in June and July 2016, 18 Polish trainees enjoyed the Ubeda summer while doing internships abroad. The trainees did internships in different sectors, namely hotels (housekeepers, receptionists), restaurants (chefs, waiters) and tourism (tourism services assistants, tour guide assistants). They fulfilled multiple different tasks, such as:

 

Hotel:

  • Working with reservation systems during individual and group check-in and check-out procedures
  • Learning about procedures allowing a guest to prolong the stay, shorter the stay or to change a room at the request of a guest

 

Restaurant:

  • Learning about the typical Spanish cuisine and local specialties, such as paella, tortilla de patatas, different kind of salads, pasta, desserts, etc.
  • Doing skilled cooking and food preparation

 

Tourism office:

  • Exploring and identifying local resources for further sustainable tourism development and local people’s usage
  • Carrying out online marketing and maintenance of different social media and social networks

 

Apart from their practical training, the trainees also participated in all kinds of activities to fully enjoy their stay in Spain: they received basic Spanish classes, took part in a fun Flamenco workshop, tasted the local food during tapas night and enjoyed visits to Ubeda, Granada and Malaga!

 

We wish the students the best of luck in their future studies and careers and are sure they will greatly benefit from their stay in Ubeda.

Dominika Gołaszewska:

‘I think that I couldn’t have had a better practice that this one. I’m very satisfied. I learnt a lot, but I think the most important thing is to be more open for the people. I tried thinks that I never tried during my studies and practice, for example to serve coffee to the guests, to work in a reception and to develop my language skills. The people who work there always try to give us as much information as possible and to teach us necessary things. I’m sure this experience will help me in the future and maybe one day I’ll come back to this hotel.’

‘I’m very satisfy with my work placement. The atmosphere at work was very friendly and people we worked with were nice, helpful and with a smile on their face. I learnt many interesting things there, for example to pay attention to details. I spent a good time there. It was an interesting experience for me and I recommend this hotel to all who want to work there.’
