About the Project

Vulnerable Young People Accessing and Sustaining Vocational Training and Apprenticeships is an Erasmus+ project funded by the European Union. Our goal is to assist anyone working with vulnerable young people to help sustain vocational training and apprenticeships. 

 

Seven Project Partners, from five countries, will work together to identify the current policy approaches in Europe. Our partner countries are Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Austria, and the United Kingdom.

 

Our analysis will identify the strengths and weaknesses through the collation of Case Studies, and their presentation at seminars and conferencess, and by undertaking practice-sharing visits. We will disseminate our findings through the publication of a Handbook of Practice on this website and across our network of practice.
