We are pleased to announce our call for applications for a work-shadowing week in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany, from 19 October to 26 October 2019.

A number of companies and organisations in Schwäbisch Hall are happy to host students to introduce them to the world of work and help them understand the practical details of a profession. The students will have the opportunity to be part of a team in a small or medium sized company and use their language skills while taking part in the company’s daily operations. Participants will go to the work placement in the mornings, where an expert will accompany them on their introduction to a profession. In the afternoons, a cultural programme will help the participants to discover the local surroundings and to dive into German culture.
