European Commission Call for pilot project on apprentices

The European Commission has launched a Call for a pilot project on long-term mobility of apprentices.

The aim of the pilot is to test the viability of setting up "A European framework for mobility of apprentices", to enable young apprentices to develop their skills and enhance their employability, while strengthening their sense of European citizenship.

The Call is centralised and managed by the European Commission’s directorate-general for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, the UK National Agency does not manage the application process.

You can find full information and download the Call document from the European Commission’s website here. The Call contains detailed information including the types of activities which can be funded, eligibility criteria and deadlines. The Application Form and model multi-beneficiary grant agreement will be available from 4 March 2016.
