Project code number: VS/2014/0325
Funding guideline: European Commission – Integrated Projects of the EU social dialogue 2014-2016
SMEs in Europe are observing with interest the dual training systems from the German-speaking countries as well as the hybrid systems in the Netherlands and Denmark. However, many SMEs in Europe doubt the transferability of these models and their economic viability.
Target groups and their benefits
The APPRENTICEship project is aimed at SMEs and European organisations that are interested in dual training and want to transfer experiences from other European countries.
The aim of the APPRENTICEship project is to review experiences in countries with a dual system and discuss them with top representatives of SMEs in European countries. The empirical values of the dual training systems are assessed in terms of their transferability and economic viability.
Role of ISOB
ISOB had the country expertise and took over the facilitation of the seminars as part of a subcontract.
