All members of the Joint European VET Networks identified above will actively support the European Alliance for Apprenticeships and other Work based learning initiatives across Europe by actively developing possible project programmes to promote the same. Several of us are partners and working together to stimulate transnational mobility for young people’ whether this is part of their Full time Education and Training or through Apprenticeships and Internships.

EfVET, EVTA, EVBB, EUproVET pledge to work with their member organisations to continue to promote and strengthen collaboration and partnership between Business and Vocational Education and Training providers throughout Europe. This with a view to stimulating and extending opportunities for young people to gain employment. One of the best ways of doing this is via Apprenticeship-type training with both Business and VET institutions working together to ensure high quality Apprenticeship programmes.

All the Networks named above are ready to play their part, through the sharing of good practice across the EU; initiating collaborative project activity that identifies appropriate and successful models and promote the transfer of models / knowledge between countries and partners alike. Each organisation will work alongside its fellow European VET provider networks to promote improved quality and quantity of work based Apprenticeship-type provision and delivery methodologies across the EU.
