Overall, the project's main objectives were to address skill shortages among mentors and tutors within companies who are responsible for overseeing and guiding trainees during their traineeship period, produce valuable outcomes for participating organizations, and foster an extended network of partners in the VET sector. By doing so, we aimed to enhance the quality of mentorship, support the professional development of mentors, and ultimately contribute to the overall success of traineeships in various industries.
