The Project’s Outputs
What we have developed
A categorization of apprenticeships and the description of its characteristics
This will help identify different types of apprenticeships in Europe, harmonize the dialogue between its actors across countries and facilitate mobility and recognition schemes.
A requirements standard to manage the quality of apprenticeships
In other words, a document synthesising objectively the most basic needs and expectations to be taken into account, both by higher education institutions and by companies during apprenticeships to assure the quality of its outcomes;
A management toolkit - validated through piloting
This Toolkit will contain documents such as manuals, procedures, checklists and other forms to support the implementation of an “apprenticeships quality management system” based on the requirements standard, as well as to support internal and external audits to verify its conformance. The validation pilot will test and validate the developed set of documentation through piloting them in six European countries.
A Transferability Guide
The Transferability Guide shows a comparative analyses of the ApprenticeshipQ Quality Criteria with other European and International recognition tools for education and provides recommendations for harmonization and integration.
