Staff Working Document (SWD) published by the European Commission on 10 January 2023, comprising an assessment on the implementation of the Council Recommendation on a Quality Framework for Traineeships.
The Council Recommendation on a Quality Framework for Traineeships (QFT) was adopted in 2014. It sought to support young people transition from education, unemployment or inactivity into the labour market through quality traineeships that enhance their skills and allow them to gain work experience.
This report presents the findings of the European Commission’s evaluation of the QFT. It assesses the extent to which the QFT is effective, efficient and coherent, provides the European Union (EU) added value and remains relevant to tackle ongoing needs. 85% of the trainees surveyed for the evaluation said that traineeships allowed them to learn things that are useful professionally.
Moreover, the evaluation shows that the EU Quality Framework for Traineeships is an important reference point for Member States to guarantee quality traineeships. The large majority of the parties consulted – including national authorities, public employment services, business representatives and young people – believed that the framework and its 21 principles remained relevant. Nevertheless, the application of the quality principles, as well as their monitoring and enforcement, could be improved.
The SWD was published by the European Commission on 10 January 2023.
