Learners from HCUC (Harrow College and Uxbridge College) recently completed work placements in Portugal, where they undertook real, complex and exciting tasks..
One participant shared some feedback from their experience; ‘I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for this amazing opportunity you have given me – this trip has helped me overcome my social anxiety and helped me make wonderful friends and learn new things that will help me in my career. Cannot thank you enough – I will forever cherish this experience’
Learners were recruited from Construction, Health & Social Care sectors at the College. Their placements were in diverse environments including nurseries, care homes, construction sites for both residential and commercial buildings and solar energy plants. Learners also got the opportunity to visit Braga and Porto with students from Hungary which was a great enrichment opportunity for them. We will be sharing participant case studies over the coming weeks.
