http://citytravelreview.co.uk/ organises learning by doing projects for young people. Most Project members are graduates, post graduates, gap students or those taking a career break or sabbatical period. All members of the team come from different backgrounds all with different experiences and skills. Each year we have more than 200 project members that work within our teams either in Berlin, Edinburgh, Madrid, Barcelona or in Lyon. Many of our Project Members wish to add something special to their CV/Resume or portfolio and have the opportunity to learn a language, culture and to use their working skills in a fun working team environment. Some of our project members who take the initiative do gain other longer term positions through our contacts, project related visits and through our creative network. Some of our past project members also become freelance staff working in one of our CTR locations as they have most definitely proved to be valuable members of the team and have seen a CTR project through a Project Member’s own eyes.

The CTR projects have been a little made known to the public with thanks to various colleges, universities and other educational institutions including a number of workplaces over the past years. Many of our Project Members have come across the projects via good word of mouth from past project members and evidence of successful teams that still keep in touch to this day. A good number of our past project members have gone on to do exceptional positive things after completeing our projects with a fresh new perspective of their abilities and their chosen career path. Over the past years the projects have also been featured in the press, exhibitions and of course being spread by various key organistions, groups and relevant websites online. A link to some of the places where CTR has been featured can be seen on the link below and also some further places are mentioned on the bottom of our homepage and this blog:
‚Spending two months in Berlin was amazing. I met some great people, improved my writing skills and fell in love with the city. I plan on moving back next year after I finish university.‘
Steph B, UK
Over the years‘ the CTR projects have had a number of superb Project Members‘ that go on to great things. Gemma Clarke (pictured) was a CTR Project Member in Berlin who from the project was inspired to go and create the rapidly increasing popular website ‚Global Hobo‘ which is a growing globe-trotting community.
The programme was fantastic – very worthwhile and enjoyable. It certainly inspires a fire to return to Berlin!

Shakira G (USA)- A past project Member from CTR Berlin 2016
‚I just wanted to say how wonderful this experience has been for me. I’ve truly appreciated the journey. I’ve gotten to know so much about the city and the culture. I’m in love!… Absolutely to the core. The architecture alone has me so fully enthralled that I feel as though I’ve explored every nook and cranny possible. I even rented a bike for a few days and have learned the lay of the land quite well. Thank you tons for the opportunity!‘
