2nd General Assembly on Apprentice Mobility

During 2nd General Assembly on mobility of apprentices, around 300 colleagues from around Europe reviewed current and future situation. It was organised by EURO APP MOBILITY and these two days allowed participants from 28 countries to discuss concrete solutions to develop the mobility of apprentices and to highlight the political, economic and ssocietal challenges of mobility during the work-study training course.

Europe is coming to a Single market fatigue. Every year we will loose around 1 million skilled workers till 2050. According to the Investment bank, 85% employers are in need for skilled workers, 65% of SMEs has a lack of skills.

The participants discussed and worked on the adoption of a Call to Action, launched by Mr. Jean Arthuis, President of Euro App Mobility for the creation of a European space dedicate to apprenticeship. The Call for Action focusing six stepping stones, to break down the barriers that hinders long-term mobility for apprentices:

  • A single European mobility status for apprentices2.
  • Automatic mutual recognition of learning outcomes acquired during an apprenticeship abroad
  • A European vocational learner card
  • Promotion of apprenticeship mobility mentoring within companies
  • A European training path for ” mobility coordinators”
  • Sustainable financial support for the Erasmus+ program.

The aim  creating the European space dedicate to apprenticeship and vocational education and training.
