Policy learning and support to promoting apprenticeship systems and VET policy experimentation and practical development under the European Alliance for Apprenticeship.

The national VET authorities from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland behind this toolbox formed in 2014 a partnership for the development of a structured and evidence based approach promoting the development of apprenticeship and dual VET systems supporting the European Alliance for Apprenticeship and co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme.

The toolbox is building on the vast experience from well-developed apprenticeship systems. The five countries have all a long record in developing and running dual based VET systems have very matured apprenticeship systems in place playing an important role for growth, employment and lifelong learning.
