Denmark Work Placement

Denmark Our second group of learners have completed another hugely successful work placement with our partner Hvidovre Production School in Copenhagen. Eight students with learning difficulties and six members of staff enjoyed a two week stay in Copenhagen and took part in a variety of work projects including Catering and Construction. The skills developed will be extended when they return to our College at Westgate as they continue on their learning programme developing employability skills. The programme is funded through the Leonardo Mobility scheme, now called Erasmus+, and the students are planning a series of dissemination events over the next few weeks to share their experiences with colleagues and partners, including Newcastle City Learning.
When they arrived back at Newcastle airport it was good to see how much everyone enjoyed the visit and hoping to return! We will be arranging another visit but with a new group of students. If you think this is something you would like to be involved, contact us now to discuss enrolment on one of our courses from January 2014.
