Apprenticeships for the construction industry of tomorrow

Date 27/07/2015

The European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA) launched in July 2013 is a multi-stakeholder initiative to boost the quality, supply and image of apprenticeships in Europe. 

In the context of "Construction 2020”, the European Commission (DG GROW) has launched a specific communication campaign targeted at the CONSTRUCTION sector to attract young talent and improve the image of the sector, and to encourage the construction industry to offer more and better apprenticeships.

Commitments ('pledges') from contractors, their professional organisations and construction workers' trade unions across the EU (plus EFTA and EU candidate countries) are welcome.

Please read the explanations given in the application form (see below), complete the application form and submit your pledge to the DG GROW Construction 2020 team at

All forms are available both on the dedicated DG GROW Website,
and here below:

Are you ready and willing to share knowledge and experiences with other businesses (both SMEs and larger firms) to support the establishment of quality apprenticeships in the construction sector across Europe? Please express your interest to the Construction 2020 team at The Commission intends to create a network of 'ambassadors' specifically for the construction industry if there is enough interest from stakeholders.
