Ensuring Apprenticeship Effectiveness and Quality Governance with the R.APP project.

Apprenticeship is a priority all over EU Member states: R.APP project (European Roadmap for Apprenticeship Effectiveness and Quality Governance) from our member Reattiva (Italy), together with other partners are from 5 EU Countries and, apart from DE where apprenticeship in Dual System is a strong reality, 4 of them (IT, RO, MT, EL) share the same situation of very limited performances and even if regulations and schemes are rather recent, they are all atone for cultural legacy that influences effectiveness, governance and employers’ perception.

Everywhere, resistances are still related to the lack of information and awareness, bureaucratic procedures, lack of coherence between the professional/skills needs and available didactic programmes, absence of training culture, difficulty to find suitable apprentices and preparing internal tutors.

R.APP project represents a reply to the above mentioned problems and it aims to pursue the following objectives:

– Train Apprenticeship Tutors within VET Providers and Schools, who need to gain or improve skills to plan and manage Apprenticeship schemes;

– Train Apprenticeship Tutors within Enterprises, who need to gain competences on normative and administrative aspects and recruitment procedures;

– Foster the adoption of quality assurance procedures to raise the standing of apprenticeship among VET stakeholders;

– Lay the basis for widening an EU VET Mobility area for Apprenticeship with transparent qualifications systems which enable the transfer and accumulation of LOs and allow young apprentices to further develop their skills and enhance their employability perspectives.

Main R.APP project expected results are:

O1–R.APP Didactical Guidelines for training VET Tutors

O2–R.APP Training Guidelines for training VET Tutors

O3–R.APP In-Company Tutors Vademecum for Enterprises Staff

O4–R.APP Apprenticeship Mobility Vademecum for VET Staff and Enterprises Tutors
