My name is Seán Brady. I am 19 and attend Bife. I currently study Pre-University Science in Bife and have been really enjoying the course. My hobbies include Gaelic Football and music, both which I have done my whole life. I have two younger siblings aswell as my man and dad and we live in a place called Roundwood. In the future I hope to further my studies in science and decide upon a career path that is best for me in that sector
Preparation for the mobility
In preparation for the mobility, I made sure to do research on what items I may need traveling over to Malaga. I packed weather appropriate clothing and also packed smart wear for the work placement I was going to be attending. I also researched the company I was going to be working for and learned what they do in their job. The forms for work experience that would needed to be signed to complete my hours were brought aswell. I also learned a few phrases in Spanish so I didn’t have trouble when ordering food or asking general questions that would help get me through the day.
The accommodation provided to us on our mobility was of a very good standard and it was in a good location in the city. We were given apartments that all had their own individual codes to lock them without others knowing. The apartment I stayed in was open planned with several facilities such as a hob, microwave, fridge, Tv, utensils, bathroom and many other smaller things. The location was great as it was only a 10 min walk from the city center which meant we weren’t traveling for long periods of time. To my work placement it was a 20min walk which was great I found. The apartments were all on the same floor and close by so we could go to each other’s rooms if we needed anything.
