How does ADC College select Internship companies? 

ADC has built an extensive network of partner companies, that have been checked for their suitability, health and safety, as well as the quality of the training they provide. When selecting a company, ADC takes extra care to look at students’ previous training, their experience and their level of English, which will determine the level of responsibility they can assume during their internship.  


Tasks during the internship placement 

Tasks in companies vary depending on how well students perform at work during the placement period and on the work that is available at that time. Students that can demonstrate to their supervisors that they are motivated, driven, and skilled will have the best chance to be given tasks that match their abilities and expectations.

Bart

Country Manager for Poland

Bart, as the British call him, came to the UK over 10 years ago to visit his sister. He fell in love with the metropolitan spirit and never went home! Bart’s home city is Kielce, and occasionally he feels nostalgic about excursions to the beautiful Świętokrzyski National Park. Fortunately, most of his family and friends are already in the UK, so he is very happy here. In Bart’s free time he loves exploring new places and new experiences, which London has a never-ending supply of. Students and teachers certainly appreciate his willingness to tackle any problem, no matter how big or small.

  • Bart’s advice for coordinators:  We have a Polish saying “Where one door closes, a window opens” - Don’t worry, every problem has a solution.
  • Bart’s advice to students:  There is another Polish saying which is also useful: “The world belongs to the brave” – so don’t be afraid!
  • Bart’s London recommendation: Take the Emirates Air Line to Greenwich. It’s an unforgettable experience!

Daniela

Country Manager for Austria

Daniela comes from a small picturesque village called Bad Ischl in Austria. She is very close to her family and if she was to mention anything she misses, it would be the wonderful sense of community they have back home. Today, Daniela lives happily in North London with her boyfriend and two kittens. As a person Daniela is a great communicator and a friendly colleague, she combines this with being exceptionally organised and a master of excel spreadsheets. If you have a question about either personal development or ADC procedures – Daniela is the person to ask!

  • Daniela’s advice for coordinators: Find a reliable project partner with native speakers in the destination country who are willing to answer as many questions as you may have. It will help you and your students to be well prepared and put parents at ease knowing there is always someone who can actively support their children while abroad.
  • Daniela’s advice to students: Research into London areas and the workplace can eliminate unnecessary worries and save time when exploring London. Look forward to it with all your enthusiasm and use as much of your existing language, people and vocational skills as possible without worrying about making mistakes. We all have to start somewhere. 
  • Daniela’s London recommendation: That's Amore is my absolute favourite restaurant for perfectly cooked Italian food. I usually go to the one in Temple Fortune (near Golders Green).

Lena

Senior Country Manager for Germany

This is actually the second time Lena has lived in the UK, having been a student in Brighton some years ago. Lena lives in vibrant Bethnal Green where she delights in laid-back afternoons in the park, late night music gigs or just simply strolls around the many London markets on a weekend. Everyone in the office is a fan of Lena’s music as she is a brilliant singer and songwriter!

Lena is not only a very friendly and warm-hearted person, but she is also extremely well-organised, as she deals with the largest region and organises projects for more than 50 German schools.

  • Lena’s advice for coordinators: Prepare your students for the cultural differences they will experience during their London project - differences in all respects, from working to communicating, living and eating - and tell them to embrace these differences without judging. Apart from that, make sure you also allow yourself enough time to explore and enjoy London during your stay!
  • Lena’s advice to students: Be as unprejudiced and open-minded as you can. Enjoy the many new and different experiences you will gain here!
  • Lena’s London recommendation: I’m a big fan of the London parks, for example Holland Park or Regent’s Park, but most of all Victoria Park, which is my absolute favourite.

Maya

Country Manager for the Czech Republic & Slovakia

Maya was born and raised in Prague, Czech Republic, and often misses the magnificent view of Prague Castle at night. After spending many years backpacking around the globe Maya has finally settled down in London. She loves the city because, as they say “if you can make it here, you’ll make it anywhere”. As you might have already guessed, she is a very ambitious and social person. Her smile and positive and bubbly personality certainly light up the Country Managers' office during the dark winter months.

  • Maya’s advice for coordinators: Don’t be afraid to participate in the project, we are here to help you throughout the whole process!
  • Maya’s advice to students: Get the most out of it, you have been given an amazing opportunity to gain work experience in one of the most desirable cities in the world, so try to learn as much as possible from the people around you and show your positive attitude, because that’s something that people will appreciate about you here.
  • Maya’s London recommendation: Discover the parks in London – there are some places with breath-taking views of London where you can relax having a picnic with your friends, among the most beautiful parks are definitely Hampstead Heath or Alexandra Palace park. For food lovers – you should definitely visit one of the food markets in East London where you can experience the real local lifestyle and also try some of the most amazing street food.

Monique

Country Manager for the Netherlands & Belgium

Monique is an Utrecht girl, and like most Dutch people, she loves cycling. In fact, she is so passionate about it, that she regularly organises cycling excursions for visitors here in London. Monique, her husband and two children came to London in 2013, for the adventure of living abroad. Monique cherishes the city for its clean playgrounds and parks, but she is also no stranger to a night at the local pub, proper British style. Monique is the kind of person who seems to be in a constant good mood, finding something to laugh about in any situation, even in adversity.

  • Advice for coordinators: Come to London to visit ADC yourself – this way you learn about the process and get to experience what it will feel like for your students.
  • Monique’s advice to students: Be proactive, be open to the experience of working and living abroad and find a few places that you prioritize and spend time there - living the real London life.
  • Monique’s London recommendation: Do a cycling tour!

Veni

Country Manager for Bulgaria & Teacher Development Coordinator

Veni comes from the gorgeous Black Sea coast in Bulgaria where she loves the cold breeze and scenery. In London, Veni gets a little bit of nature in Wandsworth Park, situated along the South bank of River Thames, which is actually quite lovely. In addition, she has access to the vibrant and unique London environment and the endless variety of events that the capital provides. We all admire Veni when she tells us about her gruelling gym classes or exciting culinary exploration in the big city. She truly believes that the ‘sky’s the limit’. As a colleague Veni is meticulous and hardworking and has remarkable patience with both colleagues and students.

  • Veni’s advice for coordinators: Tell your students about London. It is a diverse and multi-ethnic city with a lot to offer!
