Journey to Work recruits again

Live and work in Holland or Italy for 6 weeks!

Sometimes it can be difficult to decide what to do, if you graduate from college or when you just finished a certificated programme. Should you pursue higher education or get a job? Living up to expectations… Young people don’t always know what to do.

The Erasmus + UK Agency Ecorys is praising the Journey to Work scheme, which guides young people from work to work (and/or back to school), which has a 77% success rate. And the good news is, it’s running again in 2020. The programme provides a series of (digital) Workshops here in Scotland leading to a six-week work placement in the Netherlands, with accommodation arranged, all expenses paid and on top of that food & culture money.

The project is result-oriented and delivers work experience (and you need work experience to get work experience). Taking part in the programme helps you to develop personally and professionally; you will gain valuable international experience, broaden your horizons, experience new cultures and discover new ways of working.

A recent Journey to Work student about his experience: "It was a really good opportunity to meet new people, network and enhance my future employability in Scotland. I am more able to cooperate with people from other backgrounds and cultures and I know much better my strengths and weaknesses".
