About the project

The aim of this Eras­mus + project is to improve the qual­i­ty of work­place train­ing in indus­tries in Europe.


The Intern­ship App project – Intern­ship for Indus­try was ini­ti­at­ed to address the lack of skilled young work­ers in tech­ni­cal pro­fes­sions with­in the indus­tri­al branch in Europe.
In a cou­ple of years, when many work­ers will retire, there will be a great demand for young work­ers. There­fore, it is impor­tant that VET adjust the train­ing to meet the needs for the indus­try and that the stu­dents and appren­tices will be well pre­pared for the work­ing life with regard to good qual­i­ty in work prac­tice. This requires good co-oper­a­tion between schools, train­ing cen­tres, insti­tu­tions and enterprises.

How can we raise the quality?

The projects use­ful man­u­als were devel­oped to secure the whole process of work place­ment from the prepa­ra­tion to the point of admis­sion of intern­ship. The man­u­als sup­port schools, com­pa­nies, exchange organ­i­sa­tions, as well as par­tic­i­pants.
Euro­pean mobil­i­ty is one pos­si­bil­i­ty to increase the com­pet­i­tive­ness of enter­pris­es. For­eign work place­ments are espe­cial­ly well suit­ed to gain inter­na­tion­al expe­ri­ence and to improve voca­tion­al, lin­guis­tic and inter­cul­tur­al com­pe­tences. At the same time, work place­ments improve the qual­i­ty of edu­ca­tion and the indus­tri­al location.

What are the spe­cif­ic out­comes and prod­ucts of the project?

With­in the project three man­u­als were devel­oped that pro­vide assis­tance in the prepa­ra­tion, imple­men­ta­tion and fol­low-up of stays abroad.

  • Man­u­al for intern­ship coor­di­na­tion in VET

This man­u­al helps the coor­di­na­tor to organ­ise the intern­ship. The intern­ship pro­ce­dure is pre­sent­ed step by step and dif­fer­ent tools are supportive.

  • Man­u­al for intern­ship super­vi­sors in VET

This man­u­al sup­ports the super­vi­sor at the work­place by giv­ing him/​her tools for organ­is­ing good learn­ing on the work place and infor­ma­tion of how to men­tor­ing the trainee.

  • Man­u­al for intern­ship trainees in VET

This man­u­al helps the trainee to pre­pare for the intern­ship abroad. It aims to pro­mote aware­ness of cul­tur­al diver­si­ty and describe dif­fer­ent kinds of work place­ments in indus­try. It con­tains use­ful doc­u­ments such as check­lists, etc.
