UNESCO Liaison Office Brussels welcomed Dutch trainees on their search for secondment
On Friday the 9th of November Dutch employees of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science visited the UNESCO Liaison Office in Brussels. These sixteen young professionals are following the ‘Rijkstraineeprogramma’, through which they are trained to be a policy officer for the Dutch government.
Part of their programme is a secondment in Brussels. Last Friday the group from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science came to Brussels to get information on possibilities for their secondment in Brussels. Currently two UNESCO Liaison Office staff members, Ms. Marjon Sterenberg and Mr. José Dominguez, are also doing a secondment from this programme.
Since the trainees started their day very early in The Hague, the UNESCO Liaison Office offered them a Brussels Breakfast, during which the Head of Office, Ms. Roudil told the trainees about UNESCO’s activities and what the role and activities of the Liaison Office in Brussels are.
Afterwards the trainees were given the opportunity to ask questions to their colleagues who are currently seconded to the Liaison Office, about their experiences. After this, two interactive sessions were set up, by which we showed them through different assignments what we actually do on a day-to-day basis in the Brussels office. It was a successful day, and an enriching experience. The UNESCO Liaison Office in Brussels hopes to welcome some of them as of March 2013.
