I visited two work placements which encompassed 3 students, following this I had a very productive meeting with our host partner Universal Mobility, where we discussed the plan for the week ahead. In addition we discussed collaboration on future mobility projects.
Learning & Positive Aspects of the Day
New cultural experiences were evident in different industry settings. My mentoring visits today took me to Novachool, where I got a tour of the campus and observed Gráinne and Ciara working in the pre-school section. The school itself caters from kids from 3-18 years, this is a big cultural difference between Ireland. The school was very colourful and had renewable energy projects on display.
My second visit was to GALAPAGOS where I visited Erika. This montessori school caters for children aged 3-5 years. Erika will be doing a number of observations whihc will aid her studies in her child development module. The systems in the school are very structured, with a focus on nature.
The biggest challenge encountered today as a mentor was the language barrier, but in general, most people have conversational English.
The public transport at first was difficult to understand.
The evening we had a welcome tour and toured around the Arabic region of Granada. Students had the opportunity to sample local cuisine and learnt about local culture.
