Teknikcollege, which is a collaboration platform for the industry’s supply of skills, saw that there was a great demand for good educational material about what it means to be a supervisor for interns in industry. Together, we developed a comprehensive tutorial training aimed at those who supervise students from a Teknikcollege certified education. The solution, which consists of both teacher-led and web-based parts, was unique and much appreciated.
In 2014, Teknikcollege conducted a preliminary study with companies and trainers to identify successful examples and requested support in supervisory work. The results of the feasibility study showed that there was a demand for support and updated material in order to be able to smoothly carry out a qualitative supervisor training and give the students a high quality practice. Because we wanted the education to be largely based on concrete scenarios that reflect everyday life for supervisors and students, the challenge was to find real-life situations in a challenging environment.
