Traineeships and work placements are a good way of adding to your CV, and a traineeship in another EU country could help you learn a language or work skills that you might not be able to develop at home.
A Traineeship combines learning in the classroom and experience in the workplace to improve employment outcomes for participants and increase retention and productivity in the sector.
Partner Employers provide work-based learning opportunities and collaborate with Education and Training Boards
(ETBs) on existing and new programmes to identify skills gaps in different sectors and industries.
Over 75 programmes are available in Ireland in a range of industries, with new Traineeships being developed on an ongoing basis by ETBs.
Erasmus+ studies and traineeships abroad
If you are a university student, you may be able to go on an Erasmus+
exchange abroad for part of your studies or for a traineeship in a company.
Vocational education and training
If you are in vocational education or training, or have just finished your training, and want to develop your job skills and employability through a traineeship abroad, the EU's 'Erasmus+' programme
may provide financial support.
