Applicants need to be between 23-31 years old with at least a conversational level of English. Moreover, they can’t be employed full-time at a relevant sector nor be attending university. A relevant background and the level of motivation is also part of the selection criteria3
Once applications are closed, the local organisation will review all applications and call candidates that fulfil the criteria for interviews. Once interviews are completed, the final participants will be selected and informed.
All applicants will be informed about the outcome of their application by the 16th of December the latest.
The project starts with a week-long educational course in January 2020. Then, depending on the thematic area you will select, you will go to a 3 day-long showcasing trip followed by a month-long internship in one of the other islands. Finally, you will return to your country for a six month-long placement. The earliest finish of the programme is October 2020 – it may take up to a year to complete all stages, however, depending on your availability and that of the host organisation.
There is no cost to participate in the project. On the contrary, there will be financing for the travelling and living costs needed for the apprenticeship. The educational programme and showcasing trip in Norway are also funded. We are currently working on securing some funding for the local placements as well, in order for participants to be able to receive some payment. The outcomes of this effort will be communicated with you at a further stage.
