Our goal is to foster the inclusion of youth into the labour market by connecting the educated European youth with organisations located in Barcelona, while fulfilling a need within organisations for international, skilled and motivated young people.
At Trainee+Up we work hard to create a fair relationship between students and organisations by offering suitable and quality traineeships to both parties. We want to raise awareness about the importance of creating links between educational institutes, students, and companies for the development of the economy and the inclusion of youth in the labour market.
Unlike many other companies coordinating student placements, Trainee+Up works differently by providing:
We don’t believe it is fair, or ethical that students have to pay in order to get professional experience. We think the student contributes as a valuable resource to organisations through their dedication, effort and time . Trainee+Up offers to arrange traineeships to students free of charge, which are according to the student's academic background, and we offer follow up meetings throughout the traineeship.
We want to support organisations in the search for professionals that can act as a key component of the work team. We put our trust in today's educated youth and believe that with the right opportunities and guidance they can be an invaluable asset to business. We want to change the mentality that a trainee is a free student to a trainee being the professional of the future.
The European Union has placed a lot of emphasis on investing in youth mobility in order to decrease the worrying figures of youth unemployment. Each scholarship not taken advantage of, is a missed opportunity for a student. Trainee+Up wants to support institutions and students participating in the Erasmus + program in the search for host organisations abroad.
As a social organisation, Trainee+Up wants to offer equal opportunities to the students, thereby increasing their inclusion in the labour market. Also we want to encourage enterprises to trust and invest in our youth. We work to achieve this in a transparent and practical manner, offering a personalized service.
