DRIVES project will be speaking at the European Vocational Skills Conference

The DRIVES project, represented by Semta will be speaking at the 5th anniversary celebration event of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA), as part of the European Vocational Skills Conference. The event, ‘5 years of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships: Looking back - looking forward’, will be held in Vienna, Austria on 8 November 2018.


This event will bring together speakers from across Europe to celebrate apprenticeships and the contribution the EAfA has made since its inception. We are delighted to have the opportunity present and share our vision for the DRIVES project and the central role that apprenticeships play within it. By working together with policymakers, universities, VET providers, governing body members, trade institutions and employers within the automotive industry, we aim to gain a common EU wide understanding of the automotive apprenticeship market place through sharing of good practice between OEM’s and supply chain companies.


Sharing a common goal with European Alliance for Apprenticeships, we have a dedicated work package to develop a shared understanding of apprenticeships in the EU’s automotive sector. Our ambition is to strengthen the quality, supply and image of apprenticeship programmes in the sector and the promote the crucial role they play in social mobility.


European Vocational Skills Week (EVSW) 2018 will be taking place from the 5-9 November in Vienna. VET offers people of all ages an excellent opportunity to develop their skills, prepare for jobs, and improve their employability. EVSW will raise awareness of the wide range of opportunities available through VET, and encourage more people to participate and learn what it has to offer.
