Third Sector International (3Si) is a training centre based in Seville, Spain, that is dedicated to the social, economic and cultural integration of young people across Europe.
· We work with further education colleges and training centres
· We place students and graduates in various career sectors for up to three months
· Our placements are supported by Erasmus Plus grants
We have over ten years of experience in delivering programmes that seek to improve employability, develop social networks and promote cultural integration.
3Si collaborates with a range of partners to carry out its activities, including more than 200 employers in Spain and over 30 educational institutions around Europe.
We want to help young people develop the skills and experience needed to secure future employment in an increasingly demanding and international labour market. We have managed thousands of successful placements to date with many participants going on to enter further training or employment.
3Si offers fully supported vocational work placements to participants of the Erasmus Plus programme. We work with further education colleges and training centres to deliver projects in a range of sectors, including Catering & Hospitality; Teaching; Digital Marketing; Creative Industries; Tourism; Construction; Ecology & Community Development; and Sports & Leisure. We provide and manage placements that give participants the necessary work experience to complement their studies, build their confidence and explore a new cultural environment.
3Si also participates in research projects with partners from around Europe in the sector of vocational education and training. Our successfully completed projects include creating new European courses in Digital Media, Community Development, Creative Industries and Entrepreneurial Skills using the ECVET framework.
We perform this by leading and contributing to research projects that create new courses and enhance the methods of current vocational training.
Our research is conducted with selected partners who complement one another. Training centres, research institutes, employers and awarding bodies for vocational courses are regularly involved to ensure projects are comprehensive, evidence-based and responsive to current and future needs.
