In their work programme for 2014-2015, the above mentioned social partners for the commerce sector have put particular emphasis on the integration of young people in the commerce labour market as well as on addressing skills mismatch between the skills of employees and the needs of companies.
Both EuroCommerce and UNI Europa are aware of the fact that quality apprenticeships can support access to labour market and contribute to improve skills of employees.
Therefore, they encourage their members to:
- Good quality training in the workplace, with in-company mentors trained for this purpose. With this aim, the company allows enough time, room and means/resources to the tutor/mentor, so that he may give adequate support/guidance to the apprentice according to his qualification profile.
