Voluntary practice is an opportunity for young (16–29 age group) persons to ‘test’ a desired profession and a workplace, get to know the ‘kitchen’ of a favourite profession and have a job placement. During their placement, the young persons are covered with social insurance against occupational accidents at work and occupational diseases. If such persons are registered in the Labour Exchange, they retain the existing status and guarantees during the placement. On January 1, 2015, the Ministry of Social Security and Labour of the Republic of Lithuania approved a new form of voluntary practice for young people. The fundamental change is that to have a job placement, one no longer needs to have an agreement with a university, which means that even young non- students are entitled to a job placement.
The form of a standart placement agreement is available on the following website (only in Lithuanian).
