Our Work Placement Programme can run for a minimum of two weeks to a maximum of twelve weeks.
This programme offers students the opportunity to feel what it’s like to be fully integrated into a real working environment and to put into practice the skills they have acquired in college. As well as having the opportunity to practise their English specific to their college course, they learn to work as a team and on their own initiative.
All programmes are tailor-made for this stay, and companies or agencies can choose their programme of activities from a selection provided by Shannon Academy.
During the first week of the programme, students take part in three hours of formal language classes and participate in daily afternoon activities.
Work placement starts in week two. Each placement is carefully matched to the student, and each student is assigned a workplace coordinator while here.
