Hosted by The Adecco Group France

Launched in 2017

Focus areas: 

  1. Relocate apprentices not hired by large companies to SMEs: each member of GAN should reclassify at least 25% of the non-hired apprentices (pool of skills created through apprenticeships) and other small companies.

  2. Strengthen the appeal of apprenticeships and specific sectors: 10 000 potential apprenticeship opportunities (e.g. catering and cleaning) vacant due to lack of clarity and visibility of the sectors.

  3. Modernize training tools, focusing on public-private partnerships to avoid loss of energy and resources: joint investment and organising apprenticeships by sector, linking them to the regions.

  4. Allow international and multi-company training programmes based on an Erasmus apprenticeship model. 

  5. Design training programs in line with company needs: avoid restricting certain skills to specific professions and promote skills used in a variety of professions, allowing apprentices to be relevant in the future of the professions and creating the professions of the future.
