ApprenticeQ Project logo

The mission of ApprenticeQ is to develop management tools that support Higher Education institutions and employers to offer and direct high-quality apprenticeships.

Project summary

The lack of work experience and the skills mismatch between labour demand and supply are two of the greatest challenges for young people to transition from the world of education to the world of work. A promising way to face those challenges are Apprenticeships. However, their implementation is complex and the lack of European guidelines to support it seems to be preventing many of the actors in the sector – higher education institutions and companies, particularly small and medium enterprises – to launch valuable, steady and sustainable Apprenticeship Programmes.
