Action Group 3 - Labour market, education and training

"Economic Growth and Innovation"

Specific Objectives

Action group 3 focuses on the field of dual education and in particular on dual vocational training. In a demographic situation in which over-aging and the abandoning of mountainous territories are important challenges, youngsters' involvement in the labour market is a fundamental theme. The European countries with low unemployment rates among young generations are typically countries that have adopted active labour market policies, as well as a form of dual vocational training as a base of their economic system. The dual vocational training systems of the Alpine states are very different concerning the actors, the contents and the structures involved. On this purpose, with a view to improve cross boarder cooperation and allow the exchange of best practices, the long term aim of the grop is to establish a common macroregional educational space in which vocational professions and the related certificates are reciprocally acknowledged.
