The European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA) is organising a webinar to showcase successful apprenticeship coalitions from Belgium, Denmark and Spain. This webinar comes after the launch of the renewed EAfA in July 2020 by the European Commission. The reinforced alliance calls for new commitments on digital and green apprenticeships to aid the transition to a climate-neutral Europe. As part of this webinar, participants will be able to learn about how various stakeholder groups are involved in apprenticeship coalitions and how this supports apprenticeship programmes and apprentices. Additionally speakers will highlight the main challenges they are facing especially those faced during the COVID-19 pandemic and their strategies to overcome these.
The webinar will be introduced by Tamas Varnai from the European Commission's Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion. The speakers for this webinar will include:
- Carl Lamote, Policy Officer at the Department of Education and Training, Belgium
- Guillem Salvans, Senior Project Manager at Fundación Bertelsmann, Spain
- Irene Derungs Ollero, Secretary-General for Vocational Education and Training in the region of Galicia, Spain
- Torben Schuster, Chief Consultant at the Department for Vocational and Adult Education at the Danish Ministry of Children and Education, Denmark
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentations given by the speakers. Registration is required for this event.
