Cedefop and the OECD are organising their third joint symposium on Apprenticeship and the digital transition, on 15 and 16 June 2023 in Thessaloniki.

The symposium will explore the link between apprenticeship and the digital transition in two strands:  
A. What is the impact of digitalisation on the demand for apprenticeship training (e.g., in terms of new or redefined skills, occupations, programmes, curricula etc.)?
B. What is the impact of digitalisation on apprenticeship training supply (e.g., teaching and training methodologies, training of teachers and trainers to use new technologies etc.)?  

Deadline for abstract submission: 15 November 2022 / Call for papers

Registration of general participants will open in March 2023.
