Study on the representation of apprentices in vocational education and training (VET) and other relevant bodies or networks of EU Member States, Candidate and EFTA Countries
Final report - Study
This study involved the mapping of apprentice representation structures across 37 countries including all EU Member States, Candidate and EFTA countries. Data collection combined the review of websites, policy documents and other relevant sources, and 79 semi-structured interviews with representatives of apprentice representation structures, policy makers, social partners and other relevant stakeholders at the national level. Four case studies were undertaken to analyse four apprentice representation structures in more detail. These covered Denmark, Netherlands, Australia and Canada. To inform... the current state of play of the EAN and provide suggestions for its future role, interviews were undertaken with 15 EAN members and support staff and five representatives from European level organisations. The analysis was complemented with insights gained from country-level interviews undertaken as part of the mapping of apprentice representation structures at national level. Data collection took place between January and March 2019.
