STAJ YERİ (ORTAK KURUM) BULMAK
İlk adım öğrencilere staj yapacak yerleri sağlayacak bir evsahibi kurum bulmaktır. Staj faaliyeti aşağıda belirtilen kuruluşlarla gerçekleştirilebilir:
Ancak; diplomatik temsilcilikler, Avrupa Birliği Kurumları ile Topluluk programlarını yürüten kuruluşlar bu faaliyet kapsamında ev sahipliği yapamazlar.
Öğrenciler de kendileri bağlantı kurarak staj yeri bulabilirler. Bu durumda karşı kurumdan alınacak Niyet Mektubunu (Letter of Intent) başvuru belgelerine eklemeleri gerekir.
Digital Opportunity Traineeships in Erasmus+
Avrupa Komisyonunun Dijital Beceriler üzerine staj hareketliliği yapmak isteyenler ile ilgili email bilgilendirmesini aşağıda paylaşıyoruz:
In May 2018, the European Commission presented its proposal for the next Erasmus programme for the period 2021-2027. This proposal presents new, exciting possibilities for stepping up mobility, strengthening cooperation and boosting innovation, including through the introduction of targeted mobility in forward-looking fields.
To pave the way to a successful future programme, we would like to bring to your attention a new opportunity for improving the digital skills of your students: the Digital Opportunity Traineeships initiative, which is already available under the 2018 Erasmus+ call.
As you may already have heard from your Erasmus+ National Agency, Digital Opportunity Traineeships are a pilot initiative, part of the Erasmus+ Programme, designed to tackle the lack of digital skills in Europe. The Digital Opportunity Traineeships initiative aims at equipping students from all disciplines with the digital skills that are increasingly required by the labour market, by supporting traineeships in companies. Digital Opportunity Trainees will strengthen their ICT specific skills in fields like digital marketing, software development, machine learning, big data, cybersecurity, and quantum technologies. To this end, for the years 2018 and 2019, an additional budget of 10 EUR million has been transferred to Erasmus+ from the European Union research and innovation programme Horizon2020. The Commission expects that this contribution will allow for an additional 6,000 Erasmus+ traineeships focused on digital skills.
How will your institution handle the Digital Opportunity Traineeships initiative?
The Digital Opportunity Traineeships initiative is part of the Erasmus+ programme. You can find the reference to this initiative on page 32 of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide 2018. Digital Opportunity Traineeships therefore do not require any additional procedure from your office. All Higher Education Institutions participating in Erasmus+ and having applied for the 2018 Erasmus+ call for student mobility for studies and traineeships (KA103 and KA107 budget) can already fund traineeships under the Digital Opportunity Traineeships initiative. Please be aware of this additional budget for Digital Opportunity Traineeships when applying for the dedicated Erasmus+ 2019 call for mobility next year.
In the same way as other Erasmus+ traineeships, the traineeships can last from 2 to 12 months and the trainees will receive an allowance in line with the Erasmus+ rules. Please bear in mind that as the Digital Opportunity Traineeships initiative is originally financed by Horizon2020, Horizon 2020 Associated Countries are also eligible for participation on top of Erasmus+ programme countries.
How can your students find a Digital Opportunity Traineeship?
In order to help students to find traineeships with “digital content", two platforms (ErasmusIntern and Drop'pinEures) are available, where traineeship opportunities are specifically marked with the "Digital Opportunity" badge. It is through these platforms that students can apply directly to companies for their traineeships. The Directorate-General for Communications, Networks, Content and Technology of the European Commission (DG Connect) has mobilised specifically its stakeholders to offer traineeships in the framework of this initiative. The added value of this initiative lies exactly in the digital nature of the work experience and the in-demand skills that the student will acquire.
What can your institution do?
First, spread the information about the Digital Opportunity Traineeships initiative and encourage your students, from all academic disciplines, to apply for a traineeship in the digital domain. Erasmus+ is already funding traineeships in digital skills, and this initiative has been launched to give those traineeships a significant boost. Therefore, the success of this pilot project lies in the students' uptake and in the number of mobilities for traineeships in digital skills that will be realised.
How to report on the Digital Opportunity Traineeships initiative?
When reporting in the Mobility Tool+, the Erasmus+ monitoring system, please make sure you tick the dedicated flag for Digital Opportunity Traineeships when the focus of the traineeship is on the development or acquisition of specific digital skills.
We count on you to make this initiative a success, so that even more opportunities can be offered under the next programme!
Your Erasmus+ National Agency can provide you with all the necessary information and materials about the initiative in your national language. We also encourage you to check the Digital Opportunity Traineeships' website for more information and to download materials about the initiative.
We hope that your students will not miss this unique opportunity to increase their digital skills!"
