The results? The participants gained international experience along with the knowledge and skills on the job and got in touch with the traditional Italian and Sicilian culture. At the end of the project, participants received “A Rocca” placement certificate.
During their free time they had excursions to wonderful Sicilian destinations, such as Palermo & Cefalù, Etna Volcano & Taormina, Jalari Park Museum & Castroreale and Aeolian Islands (Lipari & Volcano Islands). In addition, they enjoyed Italian cuisine in local restaurants and had a traditional “aperitivo” with the team on their first evening in Barcellona P.G.
At the end of the project, the students gave us a written feedback about their experience. In their assessment they described the project as valuable, useful and interesting. “A Rocca” and EProjectConsult are satisfied to have offered the students a possibility to gain professional experience in their sector to be more competitive in the labor market. The project took place smoothly and we are hoping to continue the pleasant cooperation with the school.
