The purpose of the Erasmus plus programme is to allow people to adapt to the requirements of the labour market at a community scale, to acquire specific skills and to improve their understanding of the economic and social sectors of the country involved, at the same time that they gain working experience.
Within the framework of Key Action 1 (KA1) of the Erasmus + Programme, the programme allows University students (Bachelor’s Degree, Master’s Degree or Engineering) to move to other countries in the European Union that are part of the Erasmus+ programme, for in-company work experience.
On the 27 January 2017, the legal firm Villalba Coloma Ankersmit signed a new agreement in order to encourage and to contribute to traineeships of students who gain access to the programme, in this case, with the University of KOSICE, in SLOVAKIA.
“VILLALBA-COLOMA-ANKERSMIT” is a legal firm operating at a national and international level, where students with an Official University Degree may take the traineeship corresponding to their curriculum programmes, at the same time that they get in contact with the daily reality of the business and integrate with a new environment by observing and learning professional conducts and attitudes.
Both parties have subscribed an international Educational Cooperation Framework Agreement whereby the external academic traineeships for university students are regulated, for the purpose of allowing each student to take the external traineeship according to their study plan, whilst acquiring a professional experience and enabling the company to acknowledge potential human resources that may contribute to their competitiveness.
The student awarded with the grant is currently taking her traineeship in the offices of the legal firm in Marbella.
