Synergy of NEETs and apprenticeship
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The main objectives of the project are: to develop favourable conditions for youth to get engaged into the educational activities and labor market, to provide a stimulating environment to participate in the activities matching their needs, to develop and promote an enterpreneurial and labor market skills through the apprenticeship as one of the skilled work force training forms. Based on the experience analysis of apprenticeship developement in the European Union countries, particularly in Estonia, Poland and Lithuania; during the project implementation the metodology to reintroduce the unemployed, out of education and not involved in training youth into the learning process would be developed. The project will be quided by an important document – Council Declaration on the the European Alliance for Apprenticeships- spreading the key message that high quality apprenticeships are effective instruments to improve sustainable transitions from school to work, notably by fostering skills that are relevant to the labour market and improving skill matches. As evidenced by the experience of some countries, youth unemployment rate is significantly lower where the apprenticeship schemes, work- based learning schemes, are succesfully implemented and enabling youth from the very beginning of their studies to work and learn gaining practical professional skills. This has a very positive impact on the youth employment and social inclusion and coherence of labor market supply and demand. Aims and objectives of the Project: 1.
