Report: Traineeship Arrangements in Member States


Stig Hirsbak, Denmark, informs about Study on a comprehensive overview on traineeship arrangements in Member States


From the introduction:


The main objective of this study was to provide an overview of traineeship arrangements in
all 27 Member States and to collect the most up-to-date information about different forms
of traineeships across the EU. Traineeships are seen as an effective mechanism which
allows young people to familiarise themselves with the world of work, thus facilitating their
transition from education (or a period of inactivity or unemployment) to employment.
However, there are also growing concerns across the EU about the quality and fairness of
traineeships as well as their effectiveness as a school-to-work transition mechanism.
