Project acronym: Cap4App
Coordinator Organisation: Croatian Chamber of Economy (CCE)
Total budget: 530.537,00 €
Sub-programme or KA: ERASMUS + KA3 – Support for Policy Reform
Planned duration: 1 October 2016 - 30 September
The Cap4App project was conceived with a view not only to overcome the existing lack of involvement of chambers as representatives of SMEs but also to provide resources for future use, having in mind the needs of the SMEs, members of the CCE.
The project brought together a consortium of six partners from Croatia and Austria who worked together to enhance the capacity of partner institutions in the field of VET so they can assist SMEs and involve a growing number of SMEs in apprenticeship. That was accomplished by training partners’ staff and developing tools and supporting measures for SMEs and in-company mentors to make apprenticeship more accessible to SMEs, and to promote apprenticeship among SMEs.
Within this project, participating partners worked to facilitate implementation of apprenticeships for the training companies, provide education for in-company mentors with content that is aligned with their needs and enables their professional and personal development, and to enhance the capacities of participating partners.
