Creative InternPrize generates opportunities for start up in careers in the creative industries for students in VET through project 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 benefits of Creative InternPrize will be for a wide spectrum of student profiles including :

  • gifted students who wish to explore career possibilities in the creative industry,
  • students often labeled as having learning challenges due to their aptitude for the practical as opposed to formal education,
  • students who have a particular creative streak possibly accompanied by a sense of entrepreneurship and
  • students from any gender and geographical, cultural, religious, economic, social background given that InternPrize works through projects generating positions and vacancies and therefore giving merit to skills and aptitudes.

The project work is supported by the use of a virtual digital platform that the partners have created so that it may become a space for 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.
