In the second half of February, a group of 15 trainees from Turkey came to Úbeda. They did their internships in restaurants, beauty salons and a kindergarten. The trainees were able to learn from great professionals who did their best to teach them new skills. According to host organisations, this was made easy because of the good manners and behaviour as well as the effectiveness of the trainees.
Firstly, some of the trainees took care of one, two and three year olds. They put on some workshops and activities that they had prepared themselves in Turkey. They also learnt about different methods of childcare. The hairdressers developed their skills in this professional field by practicing with local people. Finally, the cooking trainees learnt how to use local ingredients and explored new ways of cooking, as well as having the opportunity to cook traditional Turkish food for the restaurants. In summary, this cultural exchange has been enriching for everyone involved, both the trainees and the host organisations.
In their free time, our visitors had the opportunity to visit wonderful Andalusian cities and enjoy its weather. First of all, they visited Ubeda and Baeza, both of which are UNESCO world heritage sites. They admired the impressive views of the landscape and the renaissance buildings. They then visited Granada, which was well worth the visit since they were able to see the Alhambra and explored the halls and courtyards of the most visited monument in Spain. In Seville, they enjoyed the nice weather and walked alongside the Guadalquivir river. They also saw impressive monuments such as the Plaza de España, la Giralda (bell tower of Seville Cathedral), Torre del Oro (the Tower of Gold), Las Setas de Sevilla (Mushrooms of Seville).
We really hope that the trainees enjoyed this experience. We have been very lucky to have such a great, charming and professional group of trainees, and wish them all the best for the future.
When I was an unlucky person, my luck turned, I had the opportunity to participate in this project and I was selected, and I came to Spain for the project. These two weeks are very exciting for me, seeing and discovering
new places. I loved my internship place, they are very friendly and understanding. Thanks to them, I did many things that I did not do in Turkey, such as picking shrimp and peeling artichokes. If I get a chance again, I would love to come and work here because I had a great experience in this project.
First of all, I was always hesitant when I came here, I had the fear that I would not be able to do it. It made me feel very good to learn from them, apply them and help them. I got used to staying here from the first week. I loved it. I embraced the place where I work. Likewise, I love the work so much that I do not even realize how the time passes, they treat us very well, it gives me pleasure to work with them. Furthermore, I even wish I had a chance to stay, I want to apply hair dye, hair cut, see fundraising. It was very useful, I provided experience, I would like to thank everyone who provided me with these experiences.
First of all, I would like to thank you and your team for providing all these opportunities to us. I am sure that the most beautiful thing that Spain gave me will be the memories that I will remember in the future. Learning has had a positive impact on me. I love you so much, thank you so much for everything.
