New lecturers feel they are welcome and it makes their adaptation easier and less painful. Lot of our lecturers are coming from the field on internal security and their knowledge about this field is very good but pedagogical skills and knowledge are new. It is also very important to help our new lecturers from the other fields to get to know internal security speciality, because if the lecturer is good at English but is incompetent for example at policing or rescueing then he/she cannot teach our students professional English. Internship in agencies helps also our lecturers to build good relationship with the representatives of WoW.
