SMEs in the UK, Italy, Iceland and Turkey attended workshops where they were given an introduction to the benefits of hosting work placement trainees from abroad.
70 companies took part in the sessions across the 4 countries involved and provided feedback which has been brought together in a summary report.
The workshops were developed to go alongside the Business Handbook and aimed to "introduce the target groups to the concepts and issues covered... and to ensure that representatives from the target group fully understand the issues covered... so that they can be encouraged to take on female trainees from BS and... foster the best working environment during a placement period". The workshops included information regarding the selection of trainees, costs involved, the cultural implications, support for the trainee and an introduction to the online Get Connected Zone.
