Sustainable Aprentices

Training the workforce of the future to apply the SDGs in SMEs through Work-Based Learning in Apprenticeship programmes

With less than a decade to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set by the United Nations Agenda 2030, it is imperative to train the workforce of the future in the principles of sustainable economy, environmental protection, and inclusion to shape the working and business culture of the next generation.

The aim of Sustainable Apprentices is to support vocational education and training (VET) teachers and in-company trainers to create new work-based learning opportunities to foster the implementation of the SDGs in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through digital tools and project-based learning methods.
