Furthering collaboration to facilitate more traineeships for students at vocational schools

Description

Description

1.       It is a constant problem to find relevant traineeships for young people in vocational education. A better cooperation between educational institutions and enterprises is needed to create knowledge at the enterprises but also to make vocational education and training attractive for young people. How would a collaboration that leads to more traineeships look like?

Comments/Description
    Q-Placements.Net is the European host companies network for the promotion of international workplace training for IVET students and apprentices. The network aims at providing high quality traineeships regardless of host company sector and country. Every network member is managing international traineeships under the same quality assurance procedures agreed and written at Q-Placements handbook (http://www.q-placements.eu/results.html ). Specially interesting are the Q-Placemenst user’s guides for trainees and host companies. They are downloadable for free.

Title
    Gaining Experience Through International Traineeships
Hyperlink
Comments/Description
    The objective of the project is to offer students the opportunity to do their traineeship – which is a part of their studies – in an international enterprise in order to improve their intercultural competence and their language skills. The co-operation in multicultural teams becomes more and more a part of "normal" work routine in national as well as in international companies. That is why acting successfully in an intercultural work environment seems to become one of the key competences in the global labour market.
    In order to provide the students with optimal preparation before and support during the traineeship workshops on intercultural communication will be offered. During their stay they will be provided with e-learning tools for discussion and support.

Title
    European Digital Marketplace for Internships, Traineeships and other Work Experience Trajectory
Hyperlink
Comments/Description
    The European Internships project will create a European digital marketplace for internships, traineeships, graduation projects and other work experience placements. The objective of the project is to enhance the interaction between students and placement providers in Europe through providing access to a centralised website able to presenting information on international internships to both students and placement providers with the goal of increasing the mobility of graduates within the EU. The project is based upon the successful experience of a NL website which allows requests for internships with responses being provided within 5 days. For the current project, a new website prototype will be developed and introduced. The developed website (database) will link all similar traineeship sites across Europe to the central website, resulting in an interactive network of partner sites, to be made available in the respective partner languages. The site will be available via websites in NL, UK, DE, FR, IT & ES and various support activities will follow the implementation of the site, across the participating partner countries, to include an active dissemination strategy comprising a marketing campaign and relevant press releases. Target groups for the project are individual students, educational establishments and organisations offering placements/internships, with a focus upon SME’s.
