Towards a shared vision of apprenticeships

Achieving well-functioning apprenticeship schemes that are both cost-effective for enterprises and reflecting their skills needs are the priority issues that need to be addressed to tap the business case for apprenticeships. This was one of the key messages by Maxime Cerutti, Director of Social Affairs, during a conference of the European social partners on 26-27 May. The conference discussed the outcomes of recent separate projects by the European employers on the cost-effectiveness of apprenticeship schemes and by the ETUC on a proposal for a European quality framework for apprenticeships. BusinessEurope stands ready for further discussions with the European Commission, member states and trade unions on the future of apprenticeships. Video - Photos
