We currently have 12 students / apprentices from Göttingen in Cheltenham for 4-6 weeks on work experience placements.  They are placed with a variety of businesses and educational establishments throughout the town, and one girl is with the Inspiring families team at the Council.  Yet again they are absorbed into English family life as they stay with local families and enjoy sightseeing excursions as well.

From 3-11 October a group of 15 youngsters from Göttingen Town’s Sport Association will be here enjoying a programme of sporting and sightseeing activities.

Towards the end of October, 12 colleagues from Family Centres in Göttingen will be here for 4 days with a programme of visits to Children’s centres and meetings with practitioners of health and social care and early years learning organised, enabling better understanding of the system in the UK.
