This Guidebook was prepared within the context of a wider project commissioned by the European Commission, entitled 'Providing targeted advice on European Social Fund (ESF) support to apprenticeship and traineeship schemes', implemented between December 2012 and December 2014.

The Guidebook’s primary aim is to provide an overview of the main apprenticeship and traineeship programmes (‘what exists’) which have been in operation in each Member State in the period 2007-2012, with a particular focus on their employment outcomes and overall effectiveness.
