Secondly, it provides trainees with the opportunity to enhance their traineeship experience by socialising and spending their free time with other stagiaires by coordinating different subcommittees. The subcommittees are created by the trainees and differ from session to session. They cover areas such as sports, culture, careers, charity and entertainment.
The Traineeships Office (TO) is the trainees’ first source of information and support regarding administrative and work-related issues. The TC also is in contact with external bodies and individuals in order to bring events and activities to life. These include, amongst others: EU institutions officials, venue managers, sponsors, travel agents, food/drink suppliers and media managers.
