EfVET pledges to work with its members to promote and strengthen collaboration and partnership between Business and Vocational Education and Training providers throughout Europe, 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.

EfVET is ready to play its 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. EfVET 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.
