We are working with our European partner, IES Abastos in Valencia, Spain, providing work experience for two of their students who have come to the United Kingdom on the ERASMUS scheme. They will be working with us for three months to gain more experience in computers/networks and teaching. Manuel and Jorge are final year university students who are keen to work in the I.T. and teaching sectors. Manuel is enjoying his time in the UK “I am delighted with my placement at the Cooke e-Learning Foundation so far, because I have been able to work with new people as well as fix computers and install operating systems, I am very pleased that the charity offered me a position to work alongside tutors on their Strike Out project which teaches children vocational education in catering and functional skills”. Strike Out is the charity’s alternative education project that works with behaviourally challenged young people from across Leicester. Jorge said he likes coming to Cooke e-Learning because “No day is the same as there are new issues and problems to fix everyday in the charity’s IT classrooms. Since coming to Cooke I am becoming more independent and confident, learning new skills and this is such valuable work experience for me”.
