On 29 June, an online meeting was held between the SAS project partners to present the new questionnaires, which are a continuation of the original questionnaires addressed to each of the four groups involved in the project – apprentices, employers, trainers and Vocational Integration Counsellors (VICs). Each of the partner representatives gave their suggestions for additions and a discussion took place about the final structure of the questionnaires. The idea of the second part of the questionnaires was to track the apprentice’s vocational integration within the organisation, months after starting and completing the initial questionnaire. It is very important that all stakeholders complete and give feedback in order to gain insight into the phased development of the apprenticeship scheme and the formulation of a sustainability model.
Each of the partners should translate the second part of the questionnaires into their respective language and proceed with the completion. An additional topic for discussion was the upcoming transnational project meeting scheduled for September (13-14) in Athens, Greece, during which the partners will be tasked with comparing the pace of project development for each of the participants.
