Cedefop third Policy Learning Forum on apprenticeships will take place in the form of a virtual event on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 September 2020 from 09.30 to 13.00 CET on both days.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss with representatives of all the countries involved in Cedefop Thematic and flash Thematic Country Reviews on apprenticeships, i.e. French Speaking Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta, Lithuania, Slovenia and Sweden. Cedefop invited also representatives from Belgium-Flemish Community and Romania, which are currently participating in the bench-learning process promoted by the European Commission, together with French Speaking Belgium, Malta and Greece. This reflects Cedefop intention to open up this peer learning opportunity to a wider range of countries who are undergoing an exercise to reflect and improve their apprenticeship systems and schemes.

Like the 2017 and 2018 PLFs, the objective of the 2020 virtual PLF is to offer participants the possibility of peer learning, by sharing knowledge and reflecting on the experience of other countries. This virtual event is also a chance for the PLF community to keep in contact and get in touch with new countries working on apprenticeship.

The focus of the 2020 virtual PLF will be on apprenticeship governance and in-company training design and deliver.

The summary of the virtual PLF outcomes is available below.
