Description of the Pledge:
Within the project "Quality Assurance of Foreign Placement in Europe" (QAFP in EU) we aim to create a European network of regional agencies that will accredit companies to host apprentices and interns based on mutual criteria. One of the goals is to come to a European label for accredited companies. In this project the experience of NL and DE on this issue is used to enroll it in countries where there is less experience with work based learning. The project started in August 2012 and will end in September 2014.
