Numerous studies have shown the positive connection between skills gained, and job offers following a traineeship period. However, when it comes to transferable skills, the full potential of traineeships is not always leveraged. Designing appropriate learning outcomes for transnational traineeships can even be considered more relevant in a virtual context as realistic and properly assessed learning outcomes support the skills gained.
