Here at Partnership International we believe strongly in the power of education…and cupcakes, you can’t forget those. Our main focus as a company is to help facilitate the ongoing education of students through our work/study programmes and as such our work with schools and universities is absolutely vital.
We’re immensely proud to have worked with a range of educational organisations across over 15 countries. It’s been through these partnerships that we have been able to help thousands of students find worthwhile educational experiences abroad.
To help cement these long-standing relationships we generally use concrete, though we’ve also met countless members of staff, had our team members visit schools abroad and been in constant contact during every project. We do this not only to ensure that everything we do runs smoothly, but also to let all our partner schools and universities know that there is a very human face to our company; a team of people who really care about the value of the project and the welfare of the students.
So why should your school or university want to use our services? It’s a good question, but one that we think we can convincingly answer for you with these handy bullet points:
As we already mentioned we firmly believe in the power of education and as such our team are always learning. Our goal is to never stand still and never to accept that things can’t be improved. We listen carefully to our partners and our students and work tirelessly to keep building and bettering the services we offer. Our team love the work they do and help make sure that the students we work with have a truly unforgettable experience.
We think what we offer is second-to-none and we would love nothing more than working with your school or university! So many students and organisations have put their faith in us over the years and they have been consistently rewarded for doing so. Give us the chance to show you why their faith was well founded!
This experience have been really positive for me. I have learned how to live independently, how to value a lot of things (a job, a weekend, to do the shopping, to save money, to spend money in a responsible way, etc.). I also have demonstrated to myself that I am a professional and that I enjoy teaching a lot. Now I know that I am qualified to be a teacher in a different country with a different language. I recommend this programme for everybody because it is fantastic!
First of all, I really love Cork! The people are very nice and friendly. My placement was with a very cool and friendly company as well. I enjoyed the time with my cool colleagues and boss! My work was familiar to me because I translated documents like I am learning in Germany. I would recommend an internship in Cork for every student because it is worth it. You improve your language skills and learn the culture. The Irish accent is also very cool but funny as well! So, I really enjoyed my time here. Thank you Partnership International!
With my internship, organised by Partnership International, I got to visit many different Irish companies and was involved with introducing international students to them. I was also involved with inductions and orientations for foreign students. My work also included office administration. My colleagues were really nice so the working experience was very good. And I got to see a bit of Ireland while there. I’ve been to the Cliffs of Moher, a whiskey distillery, a falconry and many places more. So, overall it was a great experience and I would totally recommend it!
Ireland is an absolutely nice country, people are very kind and friendly, the nature is beautiful even if the weather is not as good as you’d expect. I lived in the city of Cork. It’s not so big but it’s really nice and you cannot get lost there.
I got this opportunity thanks to Partnership International. I worked in Cork for a month and I can say it was the best practical training which I ever had.
So after all, I have to say it was an absolutely great opportunity to get to know a new country/city, people and to make an intercultural experience. I am lucky that Partnership International organised everything so well and that they were hands-on to their students the entire trip. Thanks very much for everything and keep doing what you are doing! It will definitely not be my last time in Ireland and you helped me to open new ways! Cheers!
I really liked doing an internship in Cork for 3 months. In fact, I’m going to stay here another 3 months (the company where I did the internship hired me!). The city is nice and everybody is very kind, friendly and open-minded. The worst for me, as Spanish, is the weather and the prices. My English is improving a lot and I travelled around this awesome island, so I think as a vital experience it was perfect. I’ve made a great decision taking this internship with Partnership International, the welcome was excellent as was the company where I did my internship.
My internship has given me the opportunity to learn a lot and to improve my professional skills in a foreign language. It was a great opportunity for me to gain practical skills and work within a professional team. The lessons I learned as an intern are still with me today and I’m thankful to all the team of Partnership International who were a real pleasure to deal with. I would recommend an experience like this to everyone.
