Visits by future school graduates to employers

School graduates who visit premises of employers get an opportunity to see the practical aspects of selected professions on-site. At the same time, the partnership has an opportunity to inform them about job opportunities across the border. In the 2010-2011 budget year our partnership organized two worksite visits in cooperation with the Labour, Social Affairs and Family Office in Dunajská Streda as well as the Labour Office of Győr-Moson-Sopron County.

On 4 May 2011 a visit to the Komárno shipbuilding company was organized for 20 Slovak and 20 Hungarian students. They made a tour of the entire complex and saw the operation in various halls. At every site they were given key information and learned that individual parts or components of ships are manufactured independently and then assembled. They also saw how several coats of paint are sprayed on the body of a cargo ship while onshore. They also were given an explanation of the various stages of shipbuilding and how the finished vessel is first tested in the water within the factory complex before it is handed over to a customer. At the conclusion of the visit students could ask any remaining questions.

The Office of Labour, Social Affairs and Family in Dunajská Streda, in cooperation with the Labour Centre of the Government Office of Győr-Moson-Sopron County and the EURES-T Danubius cross-border partnership, organized a visit on 25 May 2011 to Rába Automotive Holding for selected students of secondary schools in Slovakia and Hungary. Twenty students from the Secondary Technical Vocational School of Dunajská Streda and twenty students from the secondary vocational school, Jedlik Ányos Gépipari és Informatikai Középiskola és Kollégium of Győr, visited this employer’s facility and received information about the EURES-T Danubius cross-border partnership and were acquainted with the jobs and activities of the factory’s employees. The activity was aimed at presenting the various professions involved in manufacturing car parts and the job opportunities available for school graduates at the company. The benefit of visits to employers is that students and potential employees get a much better idea of the requirements, skills and competencies needed for specific jobs with a particular employer.


The students and their accompanying teachers evaluated the visits as a very useful and interesting activity.
