Study on a possible framework to facilitate transnational mobility for placements at enterprises
Final report - Study
The study aimed to provide the European Commission with the necessary information to come forward with proposals to address current legal and regulatory obstacles to the transnational mobility of trainees (covering students and apprentices in initial vocational training, people on the labour market and higher education students). To this end, the study explored possible actions to be taken in view of creating a more conducive framework for transnational mobility of trainees within the EU. Whilst the study refers to ‘trainees’ in general, it also included ‘apprentices’ and the more specific... concept of ‘apprenticeship’. The methodological approach of the study consisted of a combination of desk research and a wide stakeholder consultation at national and EU level. It covered all EU Member States and the EFTA/ EEA countries Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey, and Croatia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia which participate under the preparatory measures phase.
