When we decided to organise the Placement Programme for the very first time, we wanted it to be an important guide for our students in order to give them a first contact with the world of business. It had to be an experience that they would never forget and would help them take their last decisions on their future.
So, this April and for the first time we offered the business students in Pre-U the opportunity to undertake a week-long placement in an enterprise. You could see Mr. Joan Rovira Sanz, Ms. Carol Walter and Mr. Joan Rovira Canaleta very busy organising everything, contacting a range of companies that accomplished the goals we were looking for. And they found the perfect ones, as you can see when you ask the students about their experience on the companies during their placement:
“This placement has helped me very much indeed to decide my future. I was a little bit confused about what to study and now I have it clear. I would like to work in a hotel like Sixtytwo. I could see many different areas of the hotel and it helped me understand what it is to work in this environment”. - Roser Espin, Sixtytwo.
“There was people there who drew really well and they loved my drawings. I wish one day I will draw that way” – Vera Valeva, McCann.
“This experience was just amazing, I din’t want to come back. I’d love to have a position in a company such as Antonio Miró, or work in the Marketing department for a fashion company” – Francesca Casci, Antonio Miró.
Junior Minguella Football Management
“It was a unique experience. I’ve learnt lots of things for my professional future. They even asked me to work for them in a near future” – Jack Nye, Junior Minguella Football Management.
“It was an unforgettable experience. Thanks to it now I have it clearer what I want to study, where and what I would like to do after finishing ADE in Esade”. – Andrea García, Esade.
“Until now I thought about my professional future with some doubts. After this intensive week, I have completely clear that I want to become a lawyer and study Law” - Loreto Padrós, Ferré Perpinyà Advocats.
KKH Property Investors
“Simply the most wonderful activity that St. Peter’s has prepared for its pupils. After having been in kkh-propertyinvestors for a week, I’m fascinated by the real state industry”. Luis González, Kkh Property Inverstors.
Gabinete Martínez Comín
“I think it was a very fruitful week. I learnt so much and in a very different way we do at school. We have been able to see what it implies working in a company and the effort it requires. The week helped me decide what I want to study. Now I know Law has different areas to work in and you can thus specialise in each one”. – Maria Ripol, Gabinete Martínez Comín.
“It was very interesting to actually live and get to know the day-to-day of every department in a hotel like Hotel Adagio, a small but warm hotel where I could learn and experience everything from a different point of view. I got to know the difficulties you need to face in a normal day of work but also, the hospitality and gratitude of the clients. It was worth indeed doing it!” – Irina Rafel, Hotel Adagio
A big thank you to the companies that made it possible

It is a small step into their future, but a huge one if you consider it has guided them in such a positive way. We would like to thank you to all the companies that have made it possible.
