Apprentices Preparation Training-New Approaches in Managing the Transition from Education to Employment
Project Code: 2016-1-UK01-KA202-024558
Duration: September 2016-February 2019
Across the EU, we recognise that the health, sustainability and competitive edge of our economies depends on our young people entering and retaining meaningful employment and the appropriate skills to adapt to the new demands of the labour market. This 30 month project seeks to address the new challenges in the labour market by exploring all the factors above & developing practical, user friendly and transferable solutions by nurturing & capitalising on the good work already happening in the partner countries and across Europe.
By the same token, local economies also require specialist research to ensure the labour market is adequately served. As stated by The UK Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities makes clear in the English Apprenticeship 2020 vision, “Nobody understands the skills employers need better than the employers themselves. That is why we are placing them in the driving seat. They are designing apprenticeships so that they focus on exactly the skills, knowledge and behaviours that are required of the workforce of the future”.
The target group in this project are organisations and employers that work directly with young people who are facing significant challenges securing meaningful careers, as well as the young people themselves who often need extra guidance when making the transition from education to the world of work. The preparation and guidance for transition from education to employment readiness is a key focus of this project.
