European Alliance for Apprenticeships

The European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA) unites governments and key stakeholders with the aim of strengthening the quality, supply and overall image of apprenticeships across Europe, while also promoting the mobility of apprentices. These aims are promoted through national commitments and voluntary pledges from stakeholders.

In July 2020, the European Commission launched the renewed EAfA as part of the Youth Employment Support Package. This reinforced Alliance has set six new priorities designed to target important horizontal issues such as gender, social inclusion, health and safety, and internationalisation of vocational education and training.
