    Centre for Professional Training and Vocational Internships

OUR PHILOSOPHY


Good knowledge of your field is essential, but you have to be able to apply your knowledge in practice. Our goal is to provide ECCE graduates with an extra advantage among their colleagues; to stand out from the crowd in order to have a future advantage on the job market.
 
We have a broad range of lectures and also internships to choose from in accordance with their career focus or personal interest. This ensures that ECCE graduates get a ‘complete package’ of skills, which a young business professional or entrepreneur should master.
 
We want ECCE students to experience what it is like to work in the field of international business, medicine, law and architecture and further enhance their skills, focusing both on their personal and professional development. There is a careful selection of topics which will be covered in the year 2018. Topics may vary slightly each year.

Who we are? There is a short video about us.

Who are our lecturers? Leading experts on law, international business, medicine and architecture.

What is our approach?Here is how ECCE Summer Program works.

Upon Arrival to Prague

Upon students’ arrival, we welcome them at the "Vaclav Havel" Prague Airport. After check-in at a dormitory (for this year we are cooperating with Masaryk Dormitory and Botic Student House), ECCE staff helps them to familiarize with the city and arrange basic needs for their stay. Our goal is to prepare and maintain a hospitable, friendly and welcoming environment for all our students, considering their personal needs or requests we can comply with. 


Buddy Program


Students are divided into groups of 10 and assigned a buddy, who is the liaison for the group regarding all matters and situations students can encounter while in Prague. The Buddy is also of personal help for individual students.

Lectures and Internships

Three weeks long series of ECCE lectures by leading experts. Charles University awards credits to successful ECCE's graduates in Law and International Business. 


Internships by ECCE


Our internship is the job experience you crave for. Three to a five-week long internship at a company of your choice according to ECCE's test results (1-3 students per company). Internships are always under close watch and guidance of senior company representatives, who attend to students and coach them further. Students will be able to choose their internships from law firms and corporations residing in all EU countries depending on their professional priorities.

Entertainment and Graduation

Our staff arranges various team-building events for students throughout the lectures period (the first month) of the Program. We engage students in various free time activities and introduce them to local culture in an entertaining way such as through escapers, karaoke evening, laser game, barbecue dinner, Prague sightseeing or trips around Czech Republic and abroad.


Graduation
Worldwide recognized certificate of ECCE graduation is provided at the end of each Program at an informal certificate awarding ceremony, usually in a form of an evening BBQ event. Certificates of graduation are issued under the auspices of the Charles University in Prague in the case of the law, international business and medicine programs. What is more, the partner companies grant certificates of internships on this occasion.
