The project, addresses the issue of apprenticeships delivery in the fashion sector dominated by Small, Medium and micro Enterprises (SME’s). The objective of TEXAPP is to foster and strengthen the supply of apprenticeships for SME’s and micro enterprises active in the sector through the close cooperation between EURATEX (as the European organization of the Textile and Clothing (T&C) national associations) and its partners – members and affiliates.
For fostering the supply of apprenticeships in an integrated way for the T&C sector, what matters above all is a supportive business environment offering practical assistance to SME’s. Through close cooperation, TEXAPP project partners will create and provide a structure and tools oriented towards the T&C sector considering the SME’s needs and obstacles they face in this regard. The sectoral tool package to be developed aims at assisting SME’s in setting up, planning, delivering and ensuring the quality of their apprenticeships, including apprentice assessment. TEXAPP project will act and produce targeted tools for pooling resources, sharing information, exchanging knowledge, developing ideas and learning from each other’ experiences.
