Piloting phase of the two training programmes is expected to start beginning of June 2019, engaging learners, employees and employers from the Sector from both Greece and Germany, with special emphasis on SMEs.

To achieve so, it is of vital importance to equip the young learners and employees with forward-looking qualifications, while at the same time align the offered training programmes with current and future market needs.
