On the 15th of March the EU Ministers of Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs agreed on a recommendation setting a European framework for quality and effective apprenticeships. The document, initially proposed by the Commission in October 2017, has been even since commented by OBESSU - we have shared our statement jointly with the European Youth Forum, through our cooperation in European Apprentices Network

Now, that the Framework is officially adopted, the Board of OBESSU wants to share a reaction to the document: "OBESSU welcomes the adopted framework and are happy to see a lot of improvements in the field of apprenticeships, however we do believe that the framework could and should be more ambitious." You can find the whole reaction here.
