Invitation To A Free Breakfast Seminar

Posted: 22nd October 2014

British Council Banner

British Council would like to invite you to join us for a free breakfast seminar to learn how your university/company can benefit from hosting an international IAESTE trainee next summer.  This is an ideal opportunity to meet British Council staff, employers and trainees and to hear first-hand the benefits of hosting a highly skilled international trainee.  .

IAESTE allows employers in Scotland to benefit from brilliant, motivated students from 1000 universities in over 80 countries worldwide.  Our trainees are ideally placed to carry out project and research work and can bring new ideas and new perspectives to your organisation.   Hosting an IAESTE trainee is a great way to build contacts and cultural links, as well as ambassadors for your organisation.

We offer a free and tailored service, making it as easy as possible for you to introduce a trainee into your business.  And by hosting an international trainee, your university/company also contributes to the development of home grown talent by creating an opportunity for Scotland’s university students to work overseas.

Come along and find out more!  We look forward to meeting you…
