Erasmus+ company. Drolimsa is a marketing and distribution company for cleaning products that collaborates with Mundus Association to host European internship students through the Erasmus + program. This week we talked with the people responsible for the tutoring to find out how the experience went.
"We will learn more from students than they do from us," says Daniel Huerta, Drolimsa warehouse manager and internship tutor for young students who periodically make a month-long stay at the company's logistics center. It has been more than a year since the first students, Sebastien y Maciek, were with them and the good experience has been repeated with the following.
The Erasmus + program allows vocational students to carry out internships in another country that is part of the program so that they can have a real work experience and also enhance the intercultural skills of both the students and the work team that hosts them. "Of them we stay with their way of working efficiently and they of us of the companionship and the good work environment," Daniel continues to tell us.
"Before I came, I was scared of not having enough knowledge or not being able to have contact with my co-workers," explains David, one of the Polish students who is doing his logistics practices right now in Drolimsa. These fears have clearly disappeared. We see them walking relaxed but focused on work, performing their tasks autonomously and resolving doubts with Dani when they arise.
Among the workers, the motivation to practice English at home has also grown to be able to communicate better with the incoming students. And the students themselves collaborate in the preparation of materials in their own language, in this case in Polish, so that what they have learned and the translation to the most technical words will serve the next group that arrives.
"We felt at home from day one. Everyone welcomed us great and our coworkers have helped us at all times," Aleksandra and Magdalena wrote in a farewell letter when they finished their internship. They also added that they learned "not only how their future work could be, but some Spanish words such as: I need help, upstairs, sponges, where is Dani ?, OK, perfect, I don't understand, how are you? And see you later.
We want to thank Drolimsa's commitment to vocational training and the Erasmus + program, collaborating to expand learning opportunities for young Europeans.
