EPSCO Council commits for quality traineeships
The Employment, Social Policies, Health and Consumer Affairs Council adopted on 10 March a Council Recommendation on a Quality Framework for Traineeships. The document notably recommends the setting up of proper learning and training objectives and the recognition and validation of learning outcomes acquired during the traineeship. EUCIS-LLL is in this line closely following up on the implementation of the 2012 Council Recommendation on validation through its task force on validation. Ministers also discussed the implementation of the Youth Employment Initiative and the Youth Guarantee.
