In-the-job-learning, abbreviated in Swedish to IA, is education of students in a workplace.
The aim of the on-the-job ttraining periods is:

  • develop professional skills
  • have positive experiences
  • becoming familiar with routines at the workplace
  • increase chances of employment
  • develop cooperation with working life

In-the-job-learning periods vary in length and are take place continuously throughout the degree program and today they encompass a significant part of the studies. The extent and length of the periods depend on the selected degree program. YA also regularly arrange training for work place supervisors and we wish that the employees can participate.

Before the in-the-job-learning period:

The student or the supervising teacher contacts the workplace and agrees on the terms of the training period. The written agreement can be either a basic agreement or one which specifically concerns an individual student. The student, teacher and workplace supervisor review the aims of the on-the-job training period and make a plan for it.

At the workplace:

The workplace supervisor plans the training period in accordance with its aims of and also functions as a tutor. Other responsibilities of the workplace supervisor is to sign the on-the-job training agreement, inform the other staff about the period and the student completing this internship. The workplace supervisor informs the student about industrial safety and is responsible for its implementing it.  

After the in-the-job-learning period or at the end of it:

An evaluation discussion takes place between the workplace supervisor, the student and the supervising teacher during which the aims, the plan and to what extent the aims have been fulfilled are discussed.
The student also self-evaluates the training period and receives feedback from the workplace supervisor and the supervising teacher.
