Fostering mutual learning, forging the future together

Dubbed as „the lost generation“, around 7.5 million young Europeans are unemployed and have not yet completed any vocational training or apprenticeship. High unemployment in many European countries is not only threatening individual biographies but also the future economic development in Europe. Well-developed vocational-training systems provide specific professional qualifications and facilitate access to the labor market. They also give young people the opportunity to participate and engage socially and economically. However, vocational training is failing to reach is full potential in many countries. Trade unions and employers alike can contribute to actively creating educational opportunities and employment chances for Europe’s youth. The study „Vocational Education and Training for Young People in Europe – Fostering mutual learning, forging the future together“ puts forward appropriate policy recommendations to cope with this challenge.

We would like to invite you to the presentation of the study and to a debate about new approaches for vocational training in Europe.
