She was engaged in a work placement in a folk club restaurant during a mobility experience in Italy. She is a member of a small group of students accompanied by a Swedish tutor for the first two weeks and alone for the second two weeks in Italy on a mobility experience. The group is made up of special needs students. CSCS provide their stay and work placement assistance also supporting them with local tutors and psychologists.
Special needs student with problems with alcohol abuse.
Current assessment by the respondent:
She said that she gets tired and annoyed whenever spending time out of work with the rest of the Swedish group. She was initially not positive in disscussing the situation and commenting on it. The tutor asked her to understand the situation and commenting on it. The tutor asked her to understand the situation and to take a positive decision in completing the work placement. The risk was failure of the work placement and mobility experience. She has been asked to make a written note and to make a plan to avoid a repeat of similar behaviours.
Intially she did not react very well saying that she's an adult and she can decide by herself in any situation. After some help to reflect and some meetings, the tutors find her positive attidude to take charge of her duties and responsibilities, and gave her a second chance to succeed in her mobility mission.
