It is always fascinating how fast time is running. Another six months passed and another time we have to say goodbye to the participants of a Leonardo da Vinci programme.
In September we had the pleasure to welcome another group of our CHASE partners on Tenerife. CHASE is a network of different educational institutions in diverse European countries that send their students amongst other destinations to Tenerife for completing their formation with practical experience.
The last flow coming to the island consisted of participants from Sweden, France, Latvia, Great Britain, Germany, Hungary, and Finland.
So after studying Spanish at our school in Puerto de la Cruz, all apprentices went to realize hotel internships in different 4 and 5-star hotels on the island. Those hotels are long-term partners of the academy and give their best to train young professionals.
We accompanied them and were stunned by the personal development of each of them. They went from not speaking Spanish at all to speaking it fluently. Four of the participants even received the offer to continue working in their hotels as employees. All of them gained valuable experiences in their professional field and after the time of their internships, they know perfectly how to behave in an intercultural working field.
We are very proud to release them back into their lives, knowing that for most of them, a new period will begin now. We wish them all the best and are already looking forward to welcoming the next Chase flow this year.
