- Yes. After the traineeship, trainees receive an "in-service training certificate" from the Traineeships Office. This certificate is only an administrative one, stating the name of the DG/Service the trainee was assigned to and the start and end dates.
It is sent by the Traineeships Office to the trainees about one month after the end of the traineeship period, together with a financial attestation, mentioning the amount of the grant and the deductions made for insurance.
If trainees want a reference letter, they should contact their advisers before they leave. Generally, the adviser will give a copy of the "stage report" (end of in-service training report) that he has to encode in the on-line evaluation of the trainee.
This stage report is a reference document for the specific performance of each trainee. If this report cannot be prepared by the time of the trainee's departure, it should be sent to the trainee if they so wish.
The stage report is not sent automatically by the Traineeships Office to the trainees!
