On December 3rd, the UPPRETAIL partners met in Bilbao, for the Kick-off Meeting. In this meeting all partners introduced themselves and were given an overview of the project and of each work Package.
The next steps will be the research and analysis of preconditions for the development of the apprenticeship practice in the Retail VET system in Spain, Bulgaria, Italy and Portugal.
This task will be performed by project partners on the basis of a desk research in combination with a field study, involving people with direct contact with the practices analyzed (stakeholders involved in VET system: Public bodies, public and private organisations, education and training providers and businesses, research institutions).
As a result, a transnational report on the preconditions for the development of apprenticeship in the VET-system of EU southern area countries will be carried out.
