Training Vision - Providing international work experience opportunities

on .

Shaping Director Stef Nienaltowski recently had the pleasure of catching up with Federica Bocciarelli, the Training Director at Training Vision, which is part of the ETN group. They are based in the heart of our city, and have been for many years. But as hidden gems often are, they were little known outside of their network and Stef was amazed to learn about the value they bring to Portsmouth.

Federica and her team bring around 1,300 foreign students a year into the city, and the support they give, and receive, is incredible. From the families that house these students, to the businesses that use their international experience, it is a great match.
