Praktikum England

Gecko Programmes are leading specialists in business development, project management, skills and workforce development across the UK and internationally.

English language & cultural awareness training

During the first few weeks of the programme, participants undertake a two week programme of English language and cultural awareness training, as well as carrying out a number of cultural visits to places of local interest.

Work placements

Gecko offer a structured internship programme which ensures a professional experience from the participant’s first arrival in England:

  • Host companies are preselected to match the participant’s qualifications, experience and expectations.
  • We will initially accompany all interns to their work placement to ensure that all parties are happy and understand the requirements of the internship.
  • During the internship, Gecko staff  will be in regular contact with both participants and hosts to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
  • Where necessary, we will visit the host together with the intern.
  • We will ask for feedback forms from both the participants and employers to ascertain whether things can be improved for either or both parties.
  • At the end of the programme Gecko will provide a final report based on all of the information gathered during each participant’s internship.  Gecko will also provide participants with English language certificates where appropriate.
