EAN meeting in Brussels: Mobility in Apprenticeship

The European Apprentices Network was in Brussels from the 21st until the 23rd of March alongside members of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA) discussing mobility in apprenticeships.



On March 21st, the EAN joined the EAfA members for an afternoon of discussions on apprentices’ mobility at the European Parliament. Our member Sidney intervened in plenary to share his views on the importance of mobility for apprentices.

In the framework of the event, the EAN members had a parallel meeting with a group of apprentices from all over Europe, who have done a mobility experience. This was a chance to engage in a conversation on how the Key Priorities identified by the EAN can apply to mobility, and what is needed for a mobility experience to be of quality.


In the morning, the EAN contributed to the EAfA meeting at the European Parliament by intervening in plenary. The intervention focused on the feedback from the parallel meetings with apprentices from the day before, with the aim to highlight the challenges that still need to be addressed to ensure quality. Those EAN members who have been abroad as part of their educational and training programme took the opportunity to also share their own experience with the participants.

We also discussed the future of EAN as well as a project that is launching on the next EAfA meeting in Prague, this month. EAN got introduced to our newest member, Jismell from Spain.


We continued developing our plan for an upcoming project as well as planning the year ahead of us. Our members will attend conferences and forums in Lima, Peru, and Thessaloniki, Greece – more about that in our future posts.

Some of our members will be attending the Youth Summit in Sibiu next month. They will have the chance to attend several workshops on different topics, including the future of work/apprenticeships. In the late afternoon, there will be a Citizens’ Dialogue, where the audience will get to ask questions to high-level speakers from the European Commission.

Stay tuned for more!
