Stakeholders consultation for opinion on Reinforced quality framework for traineeships  

​The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is drafting an opinion on "Reinforced quality framework for traineeships".

This opinion will  reflect on the recently published Traineeships Directive (COM(2024) 132 final - 2024/0068 (COD)) and the proposal for a Council Recommendation on a reinforced Quality Framework for Traineeships (COM(2024) 133 final).

The opinion is scheduled for adoption at the SEDEC commission meeting of 27 June 2024 and at the CoR Plenary Session of 8/9 October 2024. 

The rapporteur of the opinion, Mr. Dimitrios BIRMPAS (PES/Greece), Municipal Councilor of Egaleo, would be happy to meet with representatives of your organisation and other important stakeholders for a consultation on the future of traineeships to gather the different points of view and discuss the main issues.

During the stakeholder consultation, the rapporteur will put the following questions to the participants on:

Local Implementation of Learning Objectives

How can local and regional authorities collaborate with traineeship providers to ensure that the learning objectives of traineeships are effectively aligned with local economic needs?

Monitoring and Quality Assurance at the Local Level

What mechanisms can local and regional authorities implement to foster quality standards in traineeships to enhance skills development and employability?

Supporting Inclusivity and Accessibility

How can local/regional policies be shaped to support inclusivity in traineeships, including in rural areas and the participation of people from vulnerable groups?

Fair Working Conditions and Compensation

What  criteria could be established to define fair working conditions and compensation for trainees to reflect the cost of living and economic conditions in different regions and cities?

How can local and regional authorities stop the abusive use of traineeships, substituting proper jobs?

Facilitating Cross-Border Traineeships

What can local and regional authorities do to facilitate the logistical and administrative aspects of cross-border traineeships for both trainees and providers?

How can cities and regions contribute towards the formal mutual recognition of traineeships?

Ensuring Post-Traineeship Employment Opportunities

What strategies can local and regional authorities employ to encourage businesses to convert traineeships into permanent employment opportunities?

Engaging Local Stakeholders

In what ways can local and regional authorities actively involve educational institutions, employers and social partners in shaping the traineeship landscape?​

The consultation is designed to facilitate a comprehensive review of the changes proposed through the Directive and the Recommendation, engaging stakeholders in a constructive dialogue to refine and improve the framework for the benefit of all parties involved.


The consultation will take place on:

Wednesday, 22 May 2024, 14:30 - 16:00 CET

at the European Committee of the Regions – Room VMA21
