Youth Employment, Mobility and Training (including apprenticeships) is one of our key imperatives. By joining the European Alliance for Apprenticeships, Intern Europe pledge the following:

1.       Intern Europe pledges to create and increase UK work-based mobility opportunities for Europeans from apprenticeship schemes and VET institutions. 


2.       Intern Europe will motivate education providers to communicate with their staff, students and local communities about the advantages and importance of participation in work-based learning opportunities abroad.


3.       Intern Europe pledge to advocate labour market representatives in the UK to spread awareness about the added value for businesses when hosting European apprentices and trainees from VET.

Short company / organisation description:

Intern Europe is a 17-year-old organisation based in the UK (Northern Ireland) closely collaborating with European partners in delivering mobility projects for participants from Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Apprenticeship schemes. Over the last 16 years, Intern Europe managed to place thousands of participants from all over Europe in local companies from Belfast and more recently, Glasgow (UK) & Liverpool (UK).

Intern Europe provide work experience based Vocational training motilities for full time students and participants enrolled in apprenticeship schemes. With a network of 700+ host companies in the local business community, Intern Europe can offer a wide breadth of work placements in different sectors for full time students and participants enrolled in apprenticeship schemes. These range from Economics and Business Administration, to Environmental Conservation, Aeronautics, Nautical related placements, Car Mechanics, Surveyors, Hospitality, Food & Beverage industry, Tattoo studios, Social Care, Education, Beauty and Spa, to name few.

Despite the active engagement and promotion of mobility for VET learners, Intern Europe also designs and organises tailored mobility for teachers, VET staff and other organisations. Such projects improve the quality of VET providers and other stakeholders, by developing internationalisation competences, promoting the image of VET work placements and imposing specific knowledge to innovative teaching methods and practices.
