reactivate - yourfirsteuresjob

Your first EURES job (YfEj) and Reactivate provide the opportunity to look for or offer an apprenticeship contract in another European country.

Mobile workers and small and medium enterprises are offered with financial and non-financial supports (recruitment, financial benefits, language training and recognition of qualification).

However, in order to benefit from YfEj and Reactivate benefits and services, the apprenticeship contract must comply with some additional requirements. In particular, employers that take an apprentice through YfEj and Reactivate are required to:

  • offer skill-enhancing on-the-job learning and training
  • provide proper vocational tutorial/mentoring in the host company or organization throughout the work-based training
  • as much as possible, provide settlement and logistical support such as help finding accommodation, facilitate attendance of school classes in the case of dual training system and, is applicable, ensure complementary financial support
  • issue a certificate or written declaration formally recognizing the knowledge, skills and competences acquired during the apprenticeship, in accordance with company/national practice.

In principle, apprenticeship compliant with national law may be eligible for support, irrespective of the economic sector or national regulatory framework. However, apprenticeship forming part of mandatory professional certification requirements (as is the normal practice with regulated professions such as law, medicine and architecture) are not covered by YfEj and Reactivate.

The metropolitan City of Rome is one the promoters of the target job mobility schemes financed by the European Commission through the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) since their launch in 2012.
