European Alliance for Apprenticeships

Strengthening the supply, quality, image and mobility of apprenticeships is one of EAfA’s aim

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.

Since 2020, the renewed EAfA calls for new commitments on digital and green apprenticeships, focusing on the economic sectors that will be at the front line of the transition to a climate-neutral Europe.

The renewed EAfA  promotes national coalitions, support SMEs and reinforce the involvement of social partners including at sectoral level, as well as mobilise local and regional authorities and support the representation of apprentices in the Member States. In addition, the renewed alliance will address important horizontal issues such as gender, social inclusion and the internationalisation of VET.
