The European Trade Union would like to call upon the European Council and the European Commission:
- to propose a European Quality Framework for Apprenticeships which includes a clear definition and a series of specific quality standards and quality criteria
- to ensure that the EU education and training instruments address the quality of apprenticeship training directly
- to launch an ambitious mobility initiative as part of the Erasmus+ Programme which would enable 1million apprentices to study and work elsewhere in the European Union by 2020.
The proposal is available in: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Polish.
