European Alliance for Apprenticeships: 4th Regional Seminar for Candidate Countries
Engagement of SMEs in Work-Based Learning
The latest policy developments in apprenticeships and work-based learning in the European Union's Candidate Countries were discussed in depth at the 4th regional seminar of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships, held in Skopje, North Macedonia on 25-26 September. The experiences of the region engaging small and medium enterprises in work-based learning were the focal point of discussions.
The European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA) is a multi-stakeholder platform aiming to strengthen the quality, supply and image of apprenticeships and promote the mobility of apprentices.
In addition to national governments, members of EAfA include companies and business organisations, chambers of industry, commerce and crafts, education and training providers, youth and non-profit organisations, regional and local authorities, social partners, professional bodies and networks as well as research institutes and think tanks.
The Alliance is open to all EU, EFTA and candidate countries, and stakeholders from these countries.
More details will follow shortly on the outcomes of discussions.
