The objective of the event was to look for concrete avenues to better support the take-up of apprenticeship schemes for young people’s transition to work across the EU. With the help of educational partners but also stakeholders from the national level and employers, the event aimed to better explore how to ensure more opportunities for apprenticeships under the new mandate of the European Parliament and European Commission, building on the EU’s New Skills Agenda and on the European Pillar of Social Rights.
Speakers included Tatjana Babrauskienė, a member of the European Economic and Social Committee, Team leader for skills at the Euroepan Commission’s Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, Ben Butters, Deputy CEO of EUROCHAMBERS (the umrbella organisation of chambers of commerce in Europe), Jan Wilker from the Goethe-Institut in Brussels, and Paolo Nardi from Cometa Formazione in Italy.
CESI Secretary General Klaus Heeger opened the event, which was then moderated by Matthäus Fandrejewski, Representative of the CESI Youth.
