The testimonials also aim to underline the importance for companies, that human resources they are going to select and employ, have both the technical and professional skills to perform the specific task and the basic and transversal skills that can be acquired only by completing VET education, so to motivate students not to abandon their studies.

António Mendes is the company owner of the restaurant “Conversas & Travessas” in the city centre of Paredes which hosts professional internships and at the moment, there are two interns having a WBL experience on it.
In Antonio’s opinion, it’s important to receive interns because they bring for the restaurant new creative ideas to the daily work life of this space and they also need this opportunity to have their first labour experience in the field of eno-gastronomy.
