The Council has adopted a recommendation on a quality framework for traineeships which addresses two shortcomings: insufficient learning content and inadequate working conditions.

The recommendation provides guidelines and tools to member states, trainees, traineeship providers, and all other stakeholders in order to ensure that traineeships are a beneficial tool to help in transitions from training or inactivity to employment.

This recommendation, together with other initiatives - such as the youth employment initiative and the youth guarantee - will contribute to wider efforts for the social and professional integration of young people.
