The work placement programmes we organise under the Leonardo da Vinci and Erasmus programmes aims to provide all Participants – students, staff, job seekers, apprentices with a unique opportunity to develop and gain new skills, support personal and professional development, gain an understanding of English business culture, improve English language skills in a professional environment, and generally experience living and working life in the United Kingdom. 

We also aim to enhance trainees' employment opportunities while increasing their awareness and competences. The work placement programmes are real life-work experience and bridge the gap between the theoretical knowledge the trainees has acquired at college, or university and the reality of working in professional business environment. We ensure that young people in Europe develop the skills and competences they need for today's rapidly evolving job markets is a crucial element of our strategy. The LdV placement and Erasmus programmes are the tools towards achieving these goals.

We provide high quality and inspected work placements from 1 to 26 weeks in national and international companies matching your students' career prospects and objectives. Generally, we arrange a meeting with the work placement providing company and present the project requirements, review student's CV and application form, discuss individual requirements and needs. The British employer makes the final decision on offering a placement within their company / on taking student to their company on work placement programme. All our work placement providing companies are inspected to check health and safety requirements and suitability for accepting international students on work placement programmes. As soon as we receive positive answer from the employer that the work placement is confirmed, we send all details of the programme to project coordinator and the student.
