- Traineeship at CEDEFOP
next deadline: 2005-11-30
CEDEFOP, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, offers two six-month periods of in-service training (stages) for young university graduates and public service employees. Trainees are selected from nationals of the EU Member States of the European Union. However a limited number of nationals from non-member countries may be accepted. The training periods involve work experience in one of the departments of CEDEFOP and run from 1 March and 1 September each year.
Work carried out by the trainees would be equivalent to that given to junior executive-grade officials e.g. writing minutes of meetings, research on a particular topic, assist the supervisor or the head of unit in his/ her activities. The Translation Service of CEDEFOP also offers the possibility for in-service training. Trainees applying for a placement in the Translation Service go through the same selection procedures.
The age limit for trainees is thirty. However, the joint committee of CEDEFOP may make exceptions to this age limit at the applicant's request. A cover letter should then be submitted with the application form.
Most trainees are paid a grant and in some cases travel expenses are reimbursed.
In order to facilitate equal participation, disabled trainees may receive a supplement of 50% of the basic grant. The objective of this extra payment is to help disabled trainees to cover extra expenses such as transport, the cost of special accommodation etc. which might be required due to their disability.
The deadline for applications:
30 November (of preceding year) for the March training period
31 May for the September training period
