AZORES | Applications for ESTAGIAR U until May 31


Applications are now open for ESTAGIAR U, a professional traineeship programme in a real work context for young students living in the Azores and enrolled in higher education, including graduate, master and postgraduate programmes.

The Regional Secretariat for Youth, Housing and Employment, through the Regional Directorate for Vocational Training and Employment, informs that the application period runs simultaneously for young people and promoters until May 31on the empregojovem.azores.gov.pt portal.

The traineeships are one month long and can be carried out in July, August or September, starting and ending in the same month, with a maximum 25-hour working week. The working hours are identical to those of promoters (private companies, cooperatives, public companies, non-profit organisations).

Young people are entitled to an allowance corresponding to the Minimum Monthly Wage in the Region. This amount is reduced by 50% when trainees opt not to attend a certified training workshop with a minimum duration of 20 hours in e-learning format after-work hours covering areas such as entrepreneurship, personal development or digital marketing.

As an alternative to training in these areas, young people can choose any other training programme certified by the entities responsible for training certification in Portugal.
