Project idea
The main idea of the project is to improve the organisation of virtual internships in professional higher education programs in Europe. The objectives of the project are the following:

  1. To improve the implementation of virtual internships by creating Digital Internship Model – digital tool and materials that would help students, employers and higher education institutions in the EU to organise virtual internships more effectively and to achieve the highest possible learning outcomes of remote internships.
  2. To improve the user experience of the Digital Internship Model by developing support materials for teachers, company managers, mentors for remote work with trainees and mutual cooperation for regular assessment and correction of student performance, at the same time allowing to develop digital competences of teachers and mentors.
  3. To validate the Digital Internship Model in higher education institutions in four countries (Latvia, Lithuania, Italy, Portugal).
  4. To make the Digital Internship Model available in all the EU countries with the help of dissemination activities.
