Matching the right student to the right company
The project´s ultimate goal is to have more VET students starting an internship which really matches their interest field, skills and competencies. Only if interns work at a company on the tasks that matches their own competencies, skills and interest, the placement will be a win-win situation for all parties involved. The Ready Steady Internship project helps the students to
find the right kind of company.
To reach this goal and online internship toolbox was created, which helps students find their interests and competencies and matches them with the most suitable company. Ready Steady Internship aims to support the placement, organization and implementation of internships during the vocational educational training (VET).
