Fáilte Ireland! – With btv technologies and the Erasmus+ program to the green island
Exploring worlds beyond, gain new insights into another society, improve your language skills and, of course, experience something – the reasons for a stay abroad are many and varied. We make this possible for our trainees. With the Erasmus+ award, btv technologies is now honored for this.
Travel is education. According to this motto, we at btv technologies enable our trainees to spend time abroad in order to expand their own language skills and gain experience away from the typical btv daily routine. The main focus is on cultural exchange and experiencing foreign realities of life in order to enable a view beyond one’s own nose and, above all, to promote the personality of young people. Our apprentices work on site at a charitable institution and thus come into contact with many different people….
Because this is exactly where our trainee Victor was on duty. Victor is training as an EU industrial clerk at btv technnologies and reports on his stay in Cork. Here he worked for 2 months at “Autism Assistence Dogs Ireland”. The company trains assistance dogs for children and young people on the autism spectrum. Here, mainly Golden Retrievers and Labradors, known as well-behaved and sociable, are trained to support their children and young people in everyday life. “Somehow I had dogs around me all day and there was even an official office dog,” he tells us enthusiastically.
As industrial clerks, Victor and Moritz were entrusted with a wide variety of tasks at the non-profit organisation. A daily changing mix of commercial and logistical work areas not only provided an insight into the way of working on site, but also the practical application of one’s own knowledge and skills in their respective work area.
The whole Erasmus+ stay lasted 2 months. During this time, they had ample opportunity to get to know the country and its people on their own.
Especially the impressive landscape with the famous Cliffs of Moher, Spike Island and the capital Dublin were on the excursion plan. As well as getting to know the rich Irish culture. Especially the live music from bands and spontaneous folk sessions in Cork city centre and cooking together with other Erasmus+ students from Spain, Italy and France were among the highlights for the two btv trainees.
So it’s not surprising that both of them are keen to travel to the Emerald Isle again privately to get to know more of the warm and down-to-earth Ireland.
A few weeks ago, there was a ceremony at which the participating companies were awarded the title of Erasmus+ partner. Mrs Bernhard and our two Ireland travellers recieved the award.
