Cedefop’s Policy Learning Forum (PLF) on apprenticeships is linked to the Thematic Country Reviews on Apprenticeships (TCRs) and will be held on 7 and 8 September in Thessaloniki.

With the TCRs Cedefop supports cooperation at European level among Member States and interacts with individual countries that wish to develop quality apprenticeships, in line with EU policies. Up to date there have been 3 waves of TCRs:

  • The first wave in Malta and Lithuania (2014-2015);

  • The second wave in Greece, Italy, Slovenia (2015-2017);

  • The third wave is ongoing in Cyprus and Croatia (2017-2018). As part of this wave, Cedefop is piloting a light version of the TCRs on apprenticeships (i.e. flash TCRs) in Belgium-French speaking Community and Sweden.

The 2017 PLF on apprenticeships addresses the countries involved at different stages in the TCRs and flash TCRs on apprenticeships, or that expressed their interest to participate. The PLF is an opportunity for countries to share and generate knowledge, in a site of consensus-building around shared problems.

Participation to the event is by invitation only.
