Tackling youth unemployment
The CULT Committee of the European Parliament released an opinion on “tackling youth unemployment: possible ways out” for the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs. It stresses the importance on keeping investing in Education and employment. Among others, it proposes concrete measures to improve VET, dual education and traineeship programmes. In this sense, tomorrow the European Commission will officially launch European Alliance for Apprenticeships at World Skills Summit taking place in Leipzig. The Alliance is one of the key measures the Commission is proposing to tackle the high youth unemployment rates. Its objectives include to improve the quality and supply of apprenticeships in Europe and to change the mind-sets towards apprenticeship-type training.
