The cross-border exchange of apprentices as a model for the present and the future
On the 26th of October, the first YES webinar took place. Virtually hosted by Soka Bau, the webinar addressed posting as a learning opportunity for young generations interested in working in the construction industry. The webinar compared the features of the German and of the Italian dual vocational training systems, discussing as well their achievements, limits and risks. A particular focus was placed on the ‘My Skills’ initiative, fostering the mobility of Spanish construction workers to Germany through a scheme that allows the accreditation of skills. Dr. Lisa Dornberger, from Soka Bau, also illustrated the first findings of the YES project.
