Aims of the project:
The aim of the project is to increase the quality and contribution of traineeships due to closer cooperation between companies and universities during realisation of traineeships. The final outcome will be the evaluation form (for trainees and companies) that trainees will be able to use as a recommendation for their future employer. It also enables simple evaluation of the internship for companies.
Activites realized so far:
Interim Report was submitted by the end of February 2021. Two Transnational Project Meetings were realised since the official start of the project.
First meeting (Kick off meeting) was held in November 2019 at Metropolitan univerzity Praha.
The first day morning the team has introduced themselves and made a tour around the Metropolitan university Prague. In the after noon there was a presentation of the coordinator concerning the project activities supported by the National agency, presentation on funding rules, internal rules were discussed and setted out for statement of work and other administration.
In the evening the team had a guided tour through the city centre and dinner.
On the second day the team started with discussion of roles and activities necessary to be prepared for the future months and the agreement upon the schedule of our planned meetings again. The whole session has been concluded by common consensus on second meeting and scheduling an exact date when to meet in Edinburgh.
Second meeting was organized by Technische Hochschule Deggendorf in September 2020 in Deggendorf.
Second meeting was proposed for meeting in Edinburgh but due the COVID situation it was changed and Deggendorf University (DE) organised meeting for all 6 partners of which 2 partners (from Slovakia and UK) participated online through ZOOM platform. The topic of the meeting was group work. For the tasks related to our outputs and questionnaire preparations we needed to divide project members into three groups those who dealt with students, those who dealt with institutions and those who dealt with universities. Those three teams have to provide a research outputs by the next meeting concerning their researched group preferences concerning the opinion to quality of an internship requirements as well as preferable way of questionnaire form. Second task of the meeting was discussion on preparation of materials that could help us to collect and summarise peculiarities and good practices from each and every country concerning traineeships from our own experience.
