Over half a million training and job opportunities for young people have been mobilised since the launch of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA) in 2013. Four years on, The European Commission’s engagement with the world of business through the Alliance has given an enormous boost to the supply, quality, image and mobility of apprenticeships. It now embraces 35 countries and has inspired over 200 pledges from companies, social partners, chambers, education and training providers, youth organisations and research bodies.
This brochure contains stories of young people, who, because of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships, have got their foot onto the jobs ladder and a good career which will allow them to follow their passion. Companies who are stepping up to the mark and acting as an inspiration to others in opening up new opportunities for young people and invigorating their business with the skills that will help them to thrive.
