Launch of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships

2 July 2013: Launch of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships

Today, the European Alliance for Apprenticeships will be launched in Leipzig.

The European Alliance for Apprenticeships aims to increase the quality and supply of apprenticeships across Europe and change mind-sets towards apprenticeship-type learning. This would facilitate a smooth transition of young people from education to work.

 

The launch event will begin with opening remarks by the German Federal Minister for Education and Research, Johanna Wanka followed by opening speeches by Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, László Andor and Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, Androulla Vassiliou.

 

Participation is by invitation only.
