Partners 4 Value invites Investors’ Forum members to host internships for the most promising students

Partners 4 Value Initiative kindly invites Investors’ Forum’s members to hosting talented and motivated Lithuanian students (pre-selected at national level) for quality local or international internships.

Partners 4 Value initiative is a consortium between the Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists (LPK) and the lead Lithuanian universities (Vilnius University, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Kaunas University of Technology, Vytautas Magnus University and Klaipeda University) established at national level in Lithuania (hereafter referred as Consortium) aiming to provide motivated and talented Lithuanian undergraduates/graduates with quality international and/or local real-life work experiences, to start graduate internship programmes that would result in reinforced links between education and the world of work. 

Receiving organisations would equally benefit from qualified temporary support and early talents pre-selection opportunity. There is an opportunity to combine international and national placements when an approved intern first carries an internship in a Company’s HQ/office abroad and afterwards in the Lithuanian branch or vice versa (international internships are supported through funding mechanisms available for the sending party).

The Initiative is based on individually managed long term partnerships built with receiving organisations to ensure mutual benefits, quality standards and realisation of learning outcomes. Partners 4 Value initiative provides receiving organisations with “one channel” for communication, national pre-selection and ensures individualised relations management.

This initiative was started and managed by the UNDP Lithuania together with participating high education establishments back in 2010. Since the closure of the UNDP country office in Lithuania on 1 July, 2013 the Initiative was entrusted to the Consortium aiming to bring closer universities and business.

Currently the established partners network entails 120 organisations ranging from intergovernmental organisations (UNWTO, UNICRI, IOM, OTIF, UNIDROIT, UNSSC, UNHCR, UNDP, NATO, OSCE), national bodies, think tanks/research institutes, NGOs, private companies from abroad including multinationals. The successful students send-out process was ensured by the Partners 4 Value (90 interns) with positive feedback reported from host organisations and interns themselves (http://partners4value.blogspot.com/). This Initiative also facilitates short working visits/stages for academic staff to assist them developing/revising academic curriculum for making it more responsive to current labour market demands (85 academic staff members sent out).

Differently from the previous stage, the Partners 4 Value initiative targets not only students enrolled in social sciences and humanities study programmes but entails a broad spectrum of prioritized study programmes from technological, biomedical and physical sciences. 

Individual partnership relations management will be continuously ensured by former UNDP Lithuania staff (2 coordinators).
