The traineeship can be organised for individuals or a group. Our companies cover practically all professional profiles. This applies to vocational training, but also to studies.
Eurocultura can organize the traineeship in Vicenza within a few weeks; however, a preparation period of at least 3 months is recommended. This gives Eurocultura enough time to get to know the participants well and to respond to their wishes as much as possible.
We also recommend to join our Open Day, where the responsible for the sending organisation can get to know the possibilities in Vicenza and the Eurocultura team, in our experience, this helps to get a realistic idea of the city, Eurocultura’s services and the programme implementation.
