Warnborough partners with Hanse Berufskolleg to provide internships for German students

German Interns in Canterbury

Warnborough College (UK) in Canterbury has welcomed 11 young achievers from our partner school, Hanse-Berufskolleg Europaschue in Lemgo, Germany.

The eleven students are taking part in work internships at various locations in Canterbury. The internships last for 3 weeks focusing on areas of career interest for the students, and this gives the interns a chance to improve their English and brush up on British history and culture.

This is the second group to come from Lemgo, and the pictures prove that they are enjoying the experience (so far).  The school Vice-Principal, Mr Bernd Wolter, came over with Mrs Anegrette Kollmeir-McNeil to oversee things. As part of the programme, the interns will visit Maidstone Television Studios, Dover Castle and other local attractions such as museums, art galleries, Roman ruins and gardens.

During their off days, the interns will be exploring London. Dr Brenden said: “I am impressed with their enthusiasm and determination to get as much as possible out of their three week stay, and to be involved with the varied activities of the college. Other groups are being planned to enable more students from Lemgo to come to Canterbury”.

Mr Wolter expressed interest to expand the ERASMUS Plus project to include teacher and staff exchanges with Warnborough. Together with our other European partners, we hope to make the collaboration multi-country in scope.

In anticipation of all this, we are learning how to drink more beer and eat sauerkraut.
