The candidates leave to England with a guide and there is a Czech speaking mentor available for the duration of stay. Apart from abroad workplacement, we also provide the candidates with accommodation, journey, social programme, English courses with native speaker, etc. All expenses are covered by the budget of the project.
The preparations for the first group begin in September 2019, the departure is planned in January 2020. The selection of candidates hasn't been closed yet.

Preparations were complicated this time by measures against COVID-19 disease, so face-to-face meetings were limited, many activities were held online.
Participants will also need to be quarantined for 14 days after they arrive in the UK.
Unlike the previous group, they are required to have greater autonomy, e.g. they do not travel to London accompanied by a coordinator. Socio-cultural activities in London are also marked by a number of restrictions. However, we believe that they will manage the internship well and will return from London not only with new experience, but also with a good feeling and a well-deserved self-confidence that will help them find a job.

We tried to find the participants a job that they would enjoy. In the first group, interns worked, for example, in the kitchen of a renowned restaurant, in offices, as assistants in a pre- school, in a photo studio and in many other interesting professions. Thanks to the contacts we have in London, we have always managed to find the participants their dream job.
We are currently working with a second group of interns online because of the current situation. We will try to send another group to London as soon as possible.

Mr. Hadley came to see the first group of participants of the Royal Chance II project before they´ll leave for their London internship experience. The meeting took place in a pleasant atmosphere, with participants talking about their plans in London and also plans after returning back home.
Mr. Hadley did his best to prepare participants for the pitfalls, but especially the opportunities that a work internship would bring them. In the afternoon section, our participants gave a tourguide of Kromeriz to Mr. Hadley, showing and telling him about the most interesting places and history of our beatuiful town. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the City hall, two ladies with experience in supporting young people in their career choices, as well as gaining experience abroad. Everyone was pleased with the contribution of a successful London intern graduate from our previous project Royal Chance, a young lady who even carried out her internship in Mr. Hadley's office and, after returning from her internship, found a job where she is successful. Mr.Hadley concluded that the participants are well prepare to go to London and have every precondition to successfully complete their internship and gain maximum positive experience from it.
