Intern­ships abroad — prefer­ably dur­ing on-the-job train­ing — are the best way to motiv­ate and reward your appren­tices. It could also be a suc­cess­ful way to increase the attract­ive­ness and per­cep­tion of your com­pany for future appren­tices and to gain advant­ages in the com­pet­i­tion for suc­cess­ful school gradu­ates. In addi­tion, your com­pany bene­fits from the inde­pend­ence and flex­ib­il­ity the appren­tices acquire abroad. For these reas­ons CAEF pro­motes an exchange of appren­tices in Europe.

Regis­tra­tion for the pro­gramme is open. We have already received first regis­tra­tions from foundries of dif­fer­ent coun­tries. As CAEF mem­ber com­pany, you can simply enter your con­tact details in the form at the homepage, without oblig­a­tion. After­wards you will receive the pass­word to down­load the con­tact list of inter­ested foundries. The list will be updated reg­u­larly and is avail­able for free.

You may con­tact the for­eign foundries dir­ectly and unbur­eau­crat­ic­ally and organ­ise the exchange com­pletely independently.

In addi­tion, CAEF assists you with:

  • your search for a suit­able internship
  • your applic­a­tion for funding
  • the cla­ri­fic­a­tion of formalities
  • and the pre­par­a­tion of the stay abroad
