The European Alliance for Apprenticeships is a multi-stakeholder initiative steered by the European Commission. The originator of the pledge is solely responsible for implementing the actions outlined in the pledge.

Country:European Union
Start Year:2013
Contact:Ben Butters, Director EU Affairs
Types of organisation:Chambers of Commerce, industry and crafts
Description:Vocational education and training are among the most important services provided by the Chambers of Commerce and Industry. Every year, nearly 1.9 million young people receive initial vocational education and training through the Chamber systems. As the European association of Chambers of Commerce, EUROCHAMBRES commits to fostering bilateral partnerships among its members. These bilateral exchanges will seek to raise the capacity of Chambers that are currently less actively involved in vocational education and training, to get inspiration from successful apprenticeships schemes abroad and to incorporate European best practices in their own national, regional and local schemes.
Area of action: Mobility
Partners:The initiative will involve the 46 member associations of EUROCHAMBRES. The activities will be coordinated by the EUROCHAMBRES secretariat.
