High-Level Expert Live Discussion on the Renewed European Alliance for Apprenticeships
In July 2020, participants from across the EU dialed in remotely to take part in a High-Level Expert Live Discussion on the renewed European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA).
Each of these sessions explored what the renewed EAfA means from the perspective of different stakeholder groups. These sessions discussed:
- The role of businesses and apprentices
- The role of regions, chambers and VET providers
- The role of social partners
European Skills Agenda for sustainable competitiveness, social fairness, and resilience
The post-2020 European policy framework on VET
was discussed at the high-level joint Cedefop/ETF virtual conference
‘Enhancing European cooperation in VET: looking back – planning ahead’, on 30 June and 1 July 2020.
The conference highlighted that current economic and societal changes
– digitalisation, green deal, demographic shifts, economic uncertainty – place VET in the foreground as a flexible means of preparing people for a changing world of work. Continuing VET (CVET) is critical for upskilling
and reskilling EU citizens
and creating a dynamic workforce, ready to respond to the economic and societal challenges ahead, and allow a smooth transition to a digital and greener economy.
