Programme

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. 

What you'll learn

This course will help you leverage the full potential of traineeships abroad by formulating and assessing learning outcomes for transferable skills gained. Furthermore, this training course will cover best practices methods based on research and provide hands-on training to design appropriate learning outcomes for transferable skills.

The online course will help you: 

  • Address which learning outcomes are relevant, formulate them and assess them so that the meaning and impact are understood by students, academic staff and employers.  
  • Explore how students can articulate and demonstrate their achievements to future employers.  
  • Understand how to transfer your new knowledge into specific institutional contexts.
