#INNOVATION IN EDUCATION

Education

ICUK is also active in the field of education, focusing on internships for students of secondary schools and universities in companies and institutions. We try to transfer new tools developed in the corporate or association environment into the practice of schools. We support teachers in the implementation of new innovative tools, involve experts from companies or successful entrepreneurs in teaching.

Through partnerships in creative learning projects , we bring information about new technologies for teaching to schools (AI, VR, etc.). In cooperation with the University of Ústí nad Labem , specifically the Faculty of Social and Economic Sciences, we implement professional practice of students at ICUK.

In the field of education we provide:
  • internships of students of high schools and universities in companies and institutions, cooperation with FSE UJEP
  • transferring new development tools in a corporate or association environment to school practice
  • Supporting teachers in introducing new innovative tools
  • Involving experts from companies and entrepreneurs in teaching
  • Partnership in creative learning projects and the transfer of new technologies into school teaching (artificial intelligence, virtual reality)

INTERNSHIPS IN INNOVATIVE COMPANIES

WE CONNECT STUDENTS WITH PARTNERS AND COMPANIES FROM OUR REGION THAT OFFER ALTERNATIVE AND INTERESTING INTERNSHIPS.

Looking for an interesting internship with a young and dynamic company?

Are you a company from the Ústí Region looking for young and talented students?

SO you’re in the right place!

FOR STUDENTS
OF
HIGH SCHOOLS

One of the obligations of most high schools in the Czech Republic is compulsory work experience. Internships for high school students are often the first professional experience of the students. Our goal is to introduce you to emerging companies that can offer a wide range of modern approaches.

We try to keep our practice simple and efficient so that you are not overly burdened by any bureaucracy.

The most common form of internship is a continuous internship (2-4 weeks per year) in case of specific internship requirements we can also accommodate you.

FOR STUDENTS
OF
HIGH SCHOOLS

The various forms of courses, internships and work placements at university create a much wider range of opportunities and activities. We mainly focus on short-term placements of approximately one month.

Our goal is to create a list of projects that university students will work on in cooperation with companies and institutions in the Ústí nad Labem region. These are short projects with practical applications, commissioned by companies or institutions themselves.

If you are interested, please contact us with the topics you are interested in. A few weeks before the start of the internship, a meeting of students and mentors will be organized , where the mentors will then select the project researchers.

FOR COMPANIES
FROM
ÚSTÍ REGION

Are you looking for bright young and talented students, perhaps future colleagues?

Do you also want to contribute to improving the quality of graduates of high schools and universities in the Ústí Region and offer an interesting internship where students will not just translate papers in the archive or carry mail?

If you are a dynamic company and can offer interesting internships, don’t be afraid to get in touch. We will be happy to visit you and discuss everything in person.

After all, there is nothing better and easier than to “educate” future colleagues while they are still studying.


COOPERATION

CreatiCom a stážisté

Radek Miškovský a Martina Štimová (CreatiCom), Vít Provazník (stážista OA)

„V květnu tohoto roku měla společnost CreatiCom možnost přivítat mezi sebou tři stážisty z Obchodní akademie. Studenti poznali prostředí mladé firmy, která každým dnem roste a rozvíjí se na poli online marketingu, web developmentu a copywrightingu. Zakusili práci v open space, poznali základy digitálního marketingu a komunikovali s account managery našich projektů. Práce studenta Vítka Provazníka se nám natolik líbila, že jsme jej oslovili na dlouhodobou spolupráci. Jsme rádi, že můžeme Vítka přivítat v našem týmu:-)“

„Dveře nových možností se mi v rámci ICUK otevřeli u REVITAL SOLUTIONS. Na své praxi jsem měla příležitost vyzkoušet si účetní programy a naučila jsem vypracovávat právní spisy. Pohledávkové oddělení mi rozšířilo znalosti v oblasti ekonomiky a ukázalo mi ta nejlepší řešení finanční problematiky, která se hodí v každodenním životě.”“

„Praxe sjednaná Inovačním centrem pro mě byla velmi přínosná. Díky tomu, že jsem měl stáž v jednom se start-upů jsem zjistil, jak to chodí v začátcích podnikání a získal tak cenné zkušenosti. Firma mi nakonec nabídla pracovní pozici v oblasti Copywritingu, kterou jsem s radostí přijal. Inovační centrum Ústeckého kraje, z. s. můžu pro jejich zodpovědný a profesionální přístup k realizaci praxe jen doporučit.“

IMPLEMENTED PROJECTS

STAGES METHOD

Increasing creativity and mathematical thinking in schools

The STAGES project by Israeli talent mentor Opher Brayeris aimed at developing creativity and mathematical thinking in primary school pupils. ICUK helped to launch and test the project in nine schools primarily in the Ústí Region, but it was also deployed in schools in Prague, Mnichovo Hradiště and Hořice.

Nearly 1,000 children have tried the method of developing analytical thinking, combinatorics and creativity in several thousand exercises in the fields of playing a musical instrument, karate, drawing, geometry, etc. and dozens of teachers have been trained; the best ones have been certified to train other teachers.

Thanks to the help of ICUK, the Stages method was accredited by the Ministry of Education in 2019.

RUBBY PEPPER ROBOT

Robotic Tandem Teacher

The purpose of the project called Robot as a tandem teacher, helper and assistant of students and teachers;is to test the involvement of humanoid robots as tandem teachers (education 4.0 / „co-bots“) in teaching in Czech schools. The pilot deployment took place in the autumn of 2019 at Neštěmická Primary School.

The project involves the Neštěmická Primary School in Ústí nad Labem, Jan Evangelista Purkyně University (Faculty of Education and Faculty of Science), Czech Technical University, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, the City of Ústí nad Labem, Ústí Region and ICUK.
