Priorities VET: Promoting work-based learning in all its forms, with special attention to apprenticeship-type training HORIZONTAL: Improve achievement in relevant and high-level basic and transversal competences in a lifelong learning perspective HORIZONTAL: Open and innovative education, training and youth work, embedded in the digital era
Project Summary Creative InternPrize is a partnership between 11 working in education and training who have come together to implement a concept based on project oriented apprenticeships and internships in the creative industries.
Creative InternPrize generates opportunities for start-up in careers in the creative industries for students in VET through work based learning apprenticeship experience within the school environment. Such project work is generated by the school in partnership with local industry and players in culture, media, social work, youth and other fields and in this way it places students in contact with the labour market.
The project work will be supported by the use of a virtual digital platform that the partners will create so that it may become a common working place and cooperation between students under the instruction and mentorship of teachers and the local industry that benefits from the work of the students. This cooperation will therefore not only bring VET schools closer to enterprise but also brings enterprise into the school space. The platform will be available online so that students can work from home, in their own time, alone or together with others instilling in them a sense of responsibility, cooperation, autonomy and a sense of enterprise.
Teachers and students will work in a start-up environment during pilot activities in the participating schools and then after the end of the project lifetime when schools adopt InternPrize practice for themselves.
There will be two training activities for teachers in Spain and in Greece on the subject of start-up and on the InternPrize methodology, use of tools and virtual workspace. The partners will create training content for teachers in VET on the subject of start-up and this will include resources and materials, manual and user guide of the virtual digital platform. This training on start-up will also be available as an OERs supported by a telematic university even outside the partnership and beyond the project lifetime.
To supplement the training resources the partners will create a video gallery of narratives of the InternPrize experiences in the school in which teachers, students and entrepreneurs share the experience and anecdotes. They will in this manner be taking part in a wide ownership exercise and future beneficiary teachers and students may learn from real life experience of InternPrize. This will be also an asset on the curriculum of the students sharing their experience in start-up.
The benefits of Creative InternPrize will be for a wide spectrum of student profiles including : - gifted students who wish to explore career possibilities in the creative industry, - students often labelled as having learning challenges due to their aptitude for the practical as opposed to formal education, - students who have a particular creative streak possibly accompanied by a sense of entrepreneurship and - students from any gender and geographical, cultural, religious, economic, social background given that InternPrize works through projects generating positions and vacancies and therefore giving merit to skills and aptitudes.
They will look into possibilities of implementing the methodology of bringing students in contact with enterprise through project based work experience in the creative industries in mobility projects. The partners will also explore possibilities of the transfer of the InternPrize experience to other sectors outside the creative industries.
The partnership is one based on track record of experience and geared on networking and sustainability beyond the project lifetime. It is oriented towards taking an active part and making a proactive contribution towards further competitiveness in the creative industries, combating of early school leaving and youth unemployment that are at the heart of the strategies of the European Union.
