Traineeship Package

This Traineeship package includes information and guidelines targeting three major stakeholders of the Traineeship schemes offered to students, namely Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs), and Government Institutions & NGOs. As the cases of the WEXHE project show, the major coordinators of a traineeship can be various types of organisations (companies, enterprises, firms, NGOs, institutions, etc.) which offer employment and posts for trainees, and will be in these reports termed as ‘employers’ or ‘organisations’.

The Traineeship Package for Higher Education Institutions

 

The Traineeship package for universities is composed of two main parts: the learning and training arrangements and the organisational arrangements. Learning and training arrangements focus on goals and objectives, key competences and learning outcomes, forms and methods of learning and teaching, admission criteria and assessment of trainees.

Universities organise traineeships to fulfil one of their core educational missions, i.e. to prepare students for the world of work. For various reasons this is often not fully achieved in the course of implementation of study programmes. Therefore traineeships serve as a kind of compensation or of employability

The package is prepared as reference material which helps universities (wanting to) implement traineeships to find the ways which suit their situation best. Therefore, the package also contains also a number of appendices which serve as examples of good practice, taken from various WEXHE and other cases and literature.

The Traineeship Package for SMEs

 

The traineeship package for small and medium-size enterprises (SME) is composed of two main parts: the learning and training arrangements and the organisational arrangements. Learning and training arrangements focus on goals and objectives, key competences and learning outcomes, forms and methods of learning and teaching, admission criteria and assessment of trainees.

SMEs can use a traineeship as a means to attract young graduates and to motivate them to join the organisation, which will enrich their human resources. Simultaneously the trainees can test their knowledge, competences and skills, which they can upgrade where needed.

The package is prepared as reference material, which helps SMEs (wanting to) implementing traineeships to find the ways which suit their situation best. Therefore, the package also contains a number of appendices which serve as examples of practical solutions taken from various WEXHE and other cases and from literature.

The Traineeship Package for Governments, Governmental Agencies and NGOs

The Traineeship package for governments, governmental agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) is composed of two main parts: the learning and training arrangements and the organisational arrangements.

In this package we distinguish two main types of traineeships. The first type, which is also appropriate for NGOs, is meant to attract / retain talent. With regard to governmental organisations, this can be at national level (ministries, national agencies) and / or at regional and local level. The second type is one which allows governments and governmental agencies to organise traineeships to increase the employability of graduates who have difficulties finding employment.

The package is prepared as reference material, which helps governments and NGOs dealing with traineeship to find the ways, which fit best to their conditions. Therefore it also contains a number of appendices, which serve as examples of practical solutions taken from various WEXHE and other cases and literature.
