European Apprenticeship Ambassadors (Euro App' project)

EUROPEAN APPRENTICESHIP AMBASSADORS (EURO APP' PROJECT)

European Apprenticeship Ambassadors - Network of vocational training centres for the recognition of European apprenticeships - First phase of the pilot project on long-term mobility for apprentices - September 2016 – March 2018

European Apprenticeship Ambassadors (EAA) is the name of a consortium composed of 31 vocational training centres located in 10 different European Union countries. EAA was among the candidates selected by the European Commission following the call for proposals of February 2016. The partners of the consortium have worked for 18 consecutive months on the implementation of 6 to 12-month mobilities, and on removing obstacles in order to go beyond the experimentation phase and sustain long-term mobility for apprentices in Europe.

European Apprenticeship Ambassadors – Go Further! - Network of vocational training centres for the recognition of European apprenticeships - Second phase of the pilot project on long-term mobility for apprentices - July 2017 – March 2019

European Apprenticeship Ambassadors – Go Further! is the name of a consortium composed of 20 partners located in 10 different European Union countries. EAA – Go Further! was among the candidates selected by the European Commission following the call for proposals of February 2017. The partners composing this consortium are carrying on the ongoing actions of the first phase: experimenting new schemes of 6 to 12-month mobilities and breaking down the related barriers.

Indeed, thanks to the strong work dynamic started in the first phase of the pilot project and the EAA consortium (see EAA experimentation), 15 vocational training centres have decided to continue with the pilot project on a second phase under the name of European Apprenticeship Ambassadors – Go Further!. 4 new vocational training centres and 1 intermediary organization, not involved in the consortium of origin, joined the project. Through this new experimentation, the consortium wish to go further in their approach by experimenting new block release training schemes, different from the ones initiated during the first phase (different trades, levels, rhythms, distance learning, etc.), and by keeping on mobilizing the institutions involved in the long-term mobility of the apprentices, in every country involved, to ensure the sustainability of the actions undertaken.
