Cedefop’s European database on apprenticeship schemes is an online tool that contains data on apprenticeship schemes across the 28 EU Member States, Iceland and Norway.

To showcase the findings, Cedefop has developed data visualisations online.
In May, the National Office of Vocational Education and Training and Adult Learning (Novetal), Cedefop’s Hungarian ReferNet partner, and the State Foundation for Training in Employment (Fundae), Cedefop’s Spanish ReferNet partner, welcomed ReferNet colleagues and members to partnership forums jointly organised with Cedefop.
Cedefop is organising a policy learning forum (PLF) on skills anticipation methods and practices on 14 and 15 June in Thessaloniki. The forum is a key output of Cedefop’s ongoing programme on assisting EU countries in skills matching.
