Dear Madam/Sir,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the conference ‘Advice on apprenticeship and traineeship schemes with ESF support’, which will take place in Brussels on 5-6 June 2013. The conference will be hosted by László Andor, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, and is part of the Commission's ESF Technical Assistance to Member States on apprenticeship and traineeship schemes.

The Conference will mark an important milestone in the roadmap towards establishing the European Alliance for Apprenticeships. It will provide information and working sessions on apprenticeship and traineeship schemes throughout the EU, including a consideration of how European funding can be used to develop new schemes or improve existing ones. It will also provide an opportunity to refine commitments of actions and pledges from stakeholders.

The conference targets national authorities, in particular those in charge of managing ESF, relevant national and regional agencies, as well as social partners and public and private employment services.

Registration is no longer possible. The event is booked out
