Creative InternPrize

Creative InternPrize Project: 2016-2018. ValIda is partner of the Creative InternPrize Project and it is responsible for the validation of the learning curve of students, teachers and schools involved in the project activities.

Creative InternPrize is an Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnership for VET  made up 11 organisations including 3 VET schools,  1 VET provider, 1 adult education provider, 3 universities, 1 enterprise centre and 2 NGOs working in education and training who have come together to implement a concept based on project oriented apprenticeships and internships in the creative industries under the leadership of Akdeniz University of Antalya.

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.

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 startup 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.
