Looking for placements for Czech glass students
Looking for unpaid work placements for some student graphic designers/product designers/glass makers from the Czech Republic (all aged 18+). One group arrives in May and the second in June and they would be looking to work 5 days a week. I have received some CVs and I have attached some for you to look at or forward to colleagues or associates, who may be interested in offering an unpaid work placement.
Barbora has worked as a graphic designer/photographer for a design company and she has been involved in logo design, photography and production of promotional material. She has experience of working with Adobe Illustrator, Rhinoceros and Photoshop CS5. She has a basic understanding of English and one of the reasons for coming here is to improve her language skills. would like to be involved in glass cutting/engraving.
Stepanka is interested in glass design, cutting and sculpture and Radek is a glass makers assistant. Both want to come for 4 weeks in June. Both have a reasonable level of spoken English.
Placements Praktikum works with agencies across Europe organising EU funded mobility programmes, where participants come here to develop their professional and language skills and have the opportunity to work and live in another society. We place around 100 people a year and our hosts include Aston University, Birmingham Central Library, Birmingham Opera, ZF Lemforder and Bhs.
There is no direct cost to the work host; all we ask is that there is appropriate insurance in place for an unpaid work placement, completion of our final feedback form and a reference provided to the student at the end of their placement, should their work have been of a suitable standard.
Placements Praktikum will provide them with support during their stay and organise their accommodation.
