The program is organized by the Sisak-Moslavina County. All participants have to sign the Agreement with the County on their arrival. The participants in the program have the status of a trainee volunteer.

The Sisak-Moslavina county budget will provide grants for the internship. Trainee will get the grant of 900 EUR in total. It will be paid 300 EUR in the last week of each month on his/her bank account. Last part of the grant will be paid after a report and an attestation sent to the Sisak-Moslavina County. All the expenses of the linguistic training and accommodation are covered by the County. Attention : • The grant, which concerns last days or weeks of the internship, will not be paid in account until a report is provided.

* The scholarship amount is indexed to the cost of living in the country of destination.

Trainee will live in an apartment hired and paid by Sisak-Moslavina County. It is possible to change the accommodation. However, it is up to trainee and voluntary to find another place. In this case, it is necessary to inform in advance Sisak-Moslavina County, a bank and the residence (in fact, it must be informed in advance of departure which may be different according to current regulations, usually between 8 days and 1 month). Notice that it is difficult to find a cheaper accommodation.

Language training:
The Croatian language course is about 80 hours. Besides Croatian grammar and improving vocabulary, trainee will learn different matters, to read press and comment different issues, to improve specific vocabulary concerning your future job, etc. This course is also a good opportunity to exchange interesting address and experiences.

Cultural and social activities:
During the whole period of the program in Sisak-Moslavina County there will be organized different cultural activities. Those activities will be an opportunity to discover different aspects of the County (cultural and historical heritage, tradition and customs, gastronomy etc.). There will be at least two activities during trainership. As the activities are integral part of the program they are obligatory. If the cultural activities are performed during the week the participants will have a day off at work.

Required documentation:
Documents to provide Sisak-Moslavina County as soon as possible: • Copy of Passport or identity card (original to be brought) • 4 Photos Passport • Medical Certificate • copy of diploma • Tax Notice from previous year Due to the fact that European Health Insurance Card is not valid in Croatia, each participant should arrange private health insurance with repatriation in the event of illness, which covers hospital treatment expenses up to € 20 000 per illness.

It is very important to open an account in Croatia at the beginning of the internship and close it at the end of the internship (before leaving our County). Many advisers are available during all week to open the account. They will help to open and close bank account. For any problem related to this matter, it is good to contact them. For this procedure it is needed a passport and an address certificate. In case of address modification during the internship, a document must be provided to the bank with new personal details. Also during practical training the participants are not entitled to have holidays (except authorization expressed by their responsible person in the company).
