Motion Placements Ltd (City Travel Review projects)
City Travel Review has been running projects for around 10 years and has projects in Berlin, Edinburgh, Madrid, Barcelona and Lyon. CTR incorporates a mixture of study with work experience. The team members work as Travel Writer Researchers whose job it is to explore a city, research the history, sites, culture, positively review entertainment and all that the city has to offer. Project Members create an online published travel guide aimed at young people visiting the city. Project members also take part in language classes to grasp the basics of the language or to brush up on language skills already acquired. They take part in project related activities that usually involve activities such as walking tours, visiting museums or particular landmarks and sightseeing points within the city. The Project members are supported by the ctr team in the forms of workshops and team meetings. They aid with research and are their to give tips and advice on completing the project. All project members come from all walks of life all with differing backgrounds and experiences. Project members are usually undergraduates, post graduates, working people taking a short sabbatical or those taking time off before or after college/university. The Projects are from 3 weeks to 3 months long and usually take place between March-September each year.
Our projects focus on a real life experience giving the projects members a high amount of responsibility to produce a good quality piece of work at the end of the study/working experience. Project members gain the chance to learn new skills, learn a foreign language, add to their CV/resume, explore another culture, make friends and network, improve on soft skills and ultimately apply themselves, flourishing to their optimal potential.
