About This Project

By the end of Oktober 8 enthusiastic Slovenian students went on a long trip to the southern city of Seville in order to take part in a three-week traineeship at various local host companies, according to their speciality: nursing, car mechanics and administrative work. During this unique training opportunity the students managed to greatly improve their professional skills and knowledge, whilst also improving their linguistic skills in the process.

Their main tasks included the following:

  • Monitoring all aspects of patient care, including nutrition and physical activity
  • Providing treatment and medicines to patients under the supervision of doctors
  • Removing and disassemble unit, such as engine, transmission, or differential, to be repaired, using hand tools and power tools
  • Using diagnostic computers and oscilloscopes in the workplace
  • Repairing car body, i.e. welding, brazing, riveting, sheet metal and profiles bonding, assembly and disassembly of car body components and chassis
  • Providing information about cultural activities to customers
  • Providing administrative support to the director

The student managed to successfully complete their internship whilst also leaving behind a positive impression on their respective tutors. But besides work, the students still hade plenty of time left to explore the city and its many splendors. Apart from that they also participated in interesting cultural trips to Gibraltar and Córdoba.

Andraž Gasar:

‘For me, this work placement was excellent, since I’ve learned a lot of new skills and experiences during these my stay in Sevilla, which will definitely prove to be very useful in the future when I am looking for work in my home country. And even though the company’s tutor could only speak a limited amount of English, we eventually managed to find a way to communicate and I’ve also learned some Spanish. Since Spain has quite a different, more relaxed culture compared to Slovenia, it was a bit difficult at the beginning of the training for me to understand what they were trying to tell me, but after the first week, I’ve gotten used to it and now, after 3 weeks, I really like Spain. I would also like to thank our mentor Silvia, as she did a great job at helping us if we had any questions and she was also a really good tour guide in Cordoba and Gibraltar.’

Eva Meglič:

‘I think this working experience in a retirement home Residencia de Mayores Claret gave me a lot of wonderful memories and knowledge about wound treatment. I’ve learned and seen how different wound care dressings effect the healing process and improved my cleaning and dressing changing skills. Because of the language barrier I also got better at reading facial expressions and since we mainly worked with elderly people who suffer from dementia, I learned a lot about how to react and act around them. I can say I really enjoyed every day of our internship in Sevilla and tried out my adapting skills in a completely new environment. I got a chance to explore a beautiful city and work with very kind and accepting co-workers who were always ready to help and explain me things I didn’t understand.’
