In October in Ubeda, we hosted 19 trainees from Ostróda and Mrągowo.
The objective of the internship was to develop their professional abilities in fields of car mechanics, commerce, hairdressing and gastronomy.
The gastronomy students assisted in preparing and serving meals and different kinds of tapas. They learned about the typical Spanish cuisine and local specialties.
The hairdressers learned how to organize the workplace, select proper tools. They practiced different methods to perform various haircuts and hairstyles.
The commerce trainees worked in various local shops to get to know how to handle with invoices, receipts and payments, how to take care of the order in the store: unpacking goods, stocking shelves, managing database. They tried their strengths in customer service.
The car mechanics were assisting in car body repairing i.e. welding, brazing, riveting and performing basic mechanical operations like oil and filter change, disassembling, assembling and replacing defective parts, washing of engine and other car components.
Trainees could get to know customs of Spanish culture and practice the language.
During their time in Spain, the group had a trip to the capital of the region – beautiful Seville. They spent the day sightseeing to learn all the most important places and monuments of this magnificent city.
One evening we spent nice time together trying different types of Spanish dishes at Tapas Night.
The group visited also The Olive Oil Interpretation Centre, where they find out curiosities about the region and a way to recognize the best quality of the “liquid gold”.
We hope that our trainees learned a big deal during their internship and that it will help them in the future in their privet and most of all in their professional lives.
