For years, the ErasmusPlus program has been promoting vocational training and mobility for young people in the European Union. Two students from the vocational school in Kuldiga, Latvia also took advantage of the opportunity and spent a few weeks in Schwerin to complete an internship as a carpenter with master carpenter André Brun in Sukow.
The two young people, accompanied by their teacher Liene, were excited about the opportunity to immerse themselves in German working life and gain practical experience. In addition to the internship, they also had the opportunity to visit Schwerin and other cities in northern Germany and learn more about the region, German culture and society. But the most important thing for them was to make new friends and establish valuable contacts for their professional future.
The time in Schwerin was undoubtedly a great challenge for the two young people, but at the same time it was also a valuable experience and an opportunity to develop personally and professionally. The openness and hospitality of the people in Schwerin helped them to quickly feel at home in their new surroundings.
The ErasmusPlus programme enables young people like Peteris and Sigurds to think outside the box and expand their skills and knowledge in an international environment. We would like to wish them all the best for their future and hope that they will successfully use the experience they have gained in their private and professional lives.
