CLP Seeking Companies to Offer Work Placements in 2018

Posted: 13th December 2017

Creative Learning Programmes Ltd. is seeking companies that can offer a five-weeks work placement to Erasmus+ students coming from Italy to Edinburgh in May 2018.

The host employer will gain a valuable team member without incurring any expense as those (wages-insurance) are covered by the scheme.

The students are graduating in the following fields:

  • Forestry and agriculture: 10 students; From 20/5 to 23/06 2018.
  • Hospitality; Cookery; Pastry; Food & drink; Languages; Marketing; Business admin; Travel and Tourism: 14 students; From 21/05 to 25/06 2018.

We would require companies to provide them with a certificate at the end of the training period (which we provide ready to sing), monitor the apprentices’ progress and potentially provide them with a Reference letter.

If you are interested, please contact us at:
