Erasmus Plus Exchange Programme January 8th to 29th 2017:
On Sunday 8th January sixteen Further Education students from Enniscorthy Vocational College travelled to Vasteras, Sweden for three weeks’ work placement. The students were selected from the following departments: Pre-Nursing, Childcare, Beauty Therapy, Hairdressing, Pre-Science and Business.
This excellent opportunity provided students with the chance to experience a different culture and work practices which will benefit them enormously in their chosen career. Many of the students have commented on the quiet, calm and professional working environment that they have experienced.
The students are staying in the centrally located Arkad Hotel which is close to all amenities. Outside temperatures are low at the moment dropping to about -10 degrees Celsius at night. In their free time students have attended an ice hockey and a bandy match along with visiting the Swedish capital Stolkholm which is just an hour away. So far the feedback from the students involved has been very positive.
