Ensuring the quality of apprenticeships

logos apprenticeship quality framework assessment areas


 EUTalent online assessment tool

The quality of apprenticeships plays a key role in training a future workforce. While national legal frameworks regulate apprenticeships, the quality assurance of these schemes is not always entirely guaranteed inside the companies.

In this context, CSR Europe and its national partners, together with a group of experts, have set up the Quality Apprenticeship Tool for Companies following previous work conducted in this areas quality tools. Based on a comprehensive framework of different quality elements, the tool helps companies to identify to what extent they have sufficient processes in place to ensure the quality and effectiveness of their apprenticeships.

The quality framework is inspired by the principles laid out in the European Youth Forum´s European Quality Charter on Internships & Apprenticeships and supporting literature from the European Commission and the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP).
