New European Alliance to improve apprenticeships


The Alliance will help to fight youth unemployment by improving the quality and supply of apprenticeships across the EU through a broad partnership of key employment and education stakeholders. It also seeks to change attitudes to apprenticeships.

The Alliance will support national reforms seeking to set up or strengthen apprenticeship schemes. It is supported by the first-ever joint Declaration by the European Commission, the Presidency of the EU´s Council of Ministers and European level trade union and employer organisations (the European Trade Union Confederation – ETUC, BusinessEurope, the European Centre of Employers and Enterprises providing Public services – CEEP and the European Association of Craft, Small and Medium Sized Enterprises – UEAPME).

The Alliance promotes measures which will be supported by the European Social Fund, the Youth Employment Initiative and Erasmus+, the new EU programme for education, training and youth.
