AppInterN – Apprenticeship Inter-network: Bringing together VET institutions and enterprises through a Network of Career Hubs
➥ ERASMUS+ KA2 – Strategic Partnership for the Exchange of Good Practices, Vocational Education and Training
The project AppInterN – Apprenticeship Inter-network: Bringing together VET institutions and enterprises through a Network of Career Hubs is an KA2 Erasmus+ programme lead by MANPOWER EMPLOYMENT ORGANISATION.
The project aims to strengthen the links between Apprenticeship, VET and corporate responsibility, inviting employers to offer apprenticeships and jobs to VET students and graduates, as well as share information about the national and international labour markets’ state-of-play, current skill requirements and occupational/sectoral developments (including such key issues as reskilling and upskilling and labour market integration).
The project is focused on the creation of an online platform titled “Apprenticeship Inter-Network”, which will host three national Career Hubs (Greek, Italian, and Spanish). Within the context of the project, VET-related institutions and associations, social partner institutes, Municipalities, and Chambers will contribute to the efficiency of Career Hubs by inviting local enterprises, employers and employer associations to join the CH databases in order to be directly networked with apprentices, graduates and future employees.
A particularly innovative aspect of the project consists in the establishment of a new intermediary role: that of the “Business Ambassadors”, namely established professionals, employers or other business staff members which will support CHs as volunteers, thus demonstrating both their personal and their businesses’ interest in corporate social responsibility.
