Placements at PHE level provide opportunities to build up new skills and knowledge both on and off the job. When they are of high quality, apprenticeships/placements promote a smoother transition from school/PHE institution to work for young people, giving them a good start to their working careers. They do so by providing a good mix of basic competences and job-specific skills as well as valuable work experience. In addition, at apprenticeships/placements students are usually able to earn a wage, even if a small one, while studying. Quality apprenticeships/placements can also provide an attractive learning pathway for youth at risk of dropping out early from initial education. Employers also benefit as they get support to identify and train workers while adding to their productive capacity and can still form their future employees. A workshop ‘Smart E-quality @ Work-Based learning’ will discuss the following topics:
- Easy apprenticeships for a small business-SAPS project;
- Work-based learning quality standards with criteria and indicators (ApprenticeshipQ project);
- How to manage apprenticeships more effectively: a presentation of the smart electronic system for Work-based learning (Apprenticetrack project);
- Mentors at the companies: MentorTrain project’s support materials for SMEs;
- Work-based learning Charter.
The participants of the event are encouraged to send their questions before the meeting or raise them during the debate in the Zoom chatbox.
The webinar will take place on 20 May 2020 from 10:00 to 11:30 (CEST) on Zoom.
