Apprenticeships for adults are one of the policy solutions to the need for supporting adults willing to train, while broadening the skills base of the working population across Europe.

According to Cedefop estimates, there are around 128 million adults with potential for upskilling or reskilling in the European Union.
EU Member States have decided to open apprenticeships to adults by removing age limits and by making them more flexible.
