Engaging SMEs in apprenticeships: Turning ideas into reality
More than 180 participants from 28 countries came up with cooperation ideas and discussed various ways of working together to help European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) increase their apprenticeship offer atCedefop’s conference in Thessaloniki (9-10 November). Ideas ranged from a European network for promoting apprenticeships to training in-company trainers, and from offering would-be apprentices a taster to organising campaigns to engage small businesses. They will form the basis for development of European projects in the coming weeks and months. Read Cedefop’s briefing note on the topic.
