Our 2 week programs are designed to help students to prepare for the future of work and the career pathways that await them.
Since 2010 we have been creating and running innovative programs under the Erasmus+ and LifeLong Learning initiatives in some of the most entrepreneurial cities including Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Dublin, Exeter and Stockholm.
We develop training programs to build an entrepreneurial mindset. Our highly specialised career coaches create learning environments to improve critical skills for learners and teachers.
Modules of the program
Skill training, work experience and career design. All in one program.
Module 1 | Work Experience
Students take a 2-week program in a European city in which they learn the most in-demand 21st century skills in the workplace. During the program they will gain work experience by developing a real project for a client working in the sector they are interested in.
Module 2 | Career Readiness
Students will also take workshops on career design and how to get ready for the future world of work. They will leave with a roadmap of their next steps to reach their career goals feeling confident in themselves and their future.
We have designed a methodology to provide experiential learning about the professional world, based on career exploration with industry experts and training in skills that are in high demand in the world of work.
A new approach to work experience
Real world problem solving and tangible deliverablesOur experienceships (micro-internships) provide students with the opportunity to work in groups, activate their skills and solve company challenges. This is exactly the type of experience hiring managers want to see on LinkedIN profiles, on cv and during interviews. This opportunity will create tangible deliverables and professional stories to convey participants’ value to a future employer.
Student learning and growth is THE goal
A traditional internship is designed by a company to solve THEIR short-term needs, not students’. If a stack of files needs to be organized it will always fall on the intern. With our micro-internship model; however, student learning is at the center of the experience. Coaching, supporting curriculum and career design and other attributes keep the student’s growth the most important outcome.
Hybrid, project learning sprintsThe future of work is short-term, project-based sprints which leverage a hybrid working environment. Our micro-internships are designed to mirror the evolving workspace and give them the skills to succeed.
