Cedefop workshop, Thessaloniki, 24 and 25 November 2014
This workshop aims to:
- review theoretical and methodological approaches for studying costs and benefits of apprenticeship at company level;
- assess tools developed to calculate costs and benefits of (apprenticeship) training focusing on tools designed for individual use by employers;
- discuss results of application of such tools in practice and feedback received from employers;
- evaluate feasibility of devising a cost-benefit tool to be applied on a wider scale for European companies as an incentive to take on apprentices.
The workshop will bring together researchers, social partners, government representatives, the European Commission and the European Investment Bank.
