Safran becomes a partner of the Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN)
On 5 September, Safran participated in the launch meeting of the French branch of the Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN) in the presence of Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility.
The Global Apprenticeship Network brings together companies and organizations to support youth employment and encourage the development of apprenticeships, together with the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the OECD.
The challenge of youth employment - Combining both skills and needs
According to ILO reports, young people have an average unemployment rate 2.9 times higher than that of other ages, often due to inadequate training. However, experience shows that apprenticeships, linking education directly to the needs of the job market, is one of the keys to success in the professional integration of young people.
