The network, powered by the resources made accessible through the website, serves as an online active community for facilitating the adoption of the VIP@WORK education programme and resources and for sharing knowledge and experiences in the wider area of Business Management.

The VIP@WORK network provides through the repository a collection of free online resources for SMEs and Business support organisations to be in position to:

  • complete an assessment or self evaluation to understand benefits to their own organization;
  • understand the concrete steps required to become an internship employer;
  • gain the skills required to manage the internship process;


  • build (personal) contacts with VET providers and other stakeholders required to develop new internship opportunities for both
    vocational college students and SMEs;
  • improve their knowledge relating to the internship “business case”;
  • gain information on potential sectors where internships can be developed in their particular region;
  • be able to quickly incorporate this new knowledge, improve their staff expertise in this field and engage their SME clients;
  • operate optimally in between the business and education sector.
