The aim of the event is to discuss, validate and complement the results of Cedefop’s studies on training leave and payback clauses to promote VET in Europe, and in particular:

  • gain a better understanding of how far training leave and payback clauses are used in Europe to promote training and how they operate; 
  • evaluate implementation of training leave and payback clauses, reflecting also on the (potential) impact of the crisis; 
  • identify issues for further research and provide policy recommendations.

The findings of the two studies will be presented separately to ensure focused discussions among the participants and specific conclusions and recommendations. Thus, the first day of the workshop will be dedicated to training leave and the second day to payback clauses.

The workshop will bring together representatives of governments, social partners, academia and research to encompass all points of view and perspectives in the debates.
