ABOUT

GAN BELGIUM

The Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN) is a network where private sector companies, business federations and associations

come together to

  • Advocate for work-readiness programs

  • Share best practices

  • Facilitate multi-stakeholder dialogue

  • Commit to action around youth employability and skills development

The initiative is driven by business leaders worldwide.

As a GAN National Network, GAN Belgium aims to root the GAN Global concept in a national context. Our overarching goal is to encourage and link business initiatives and employment opportunities for youth - more precisely work-readiness programmes or work-based learning opportunities.

 

WHY GAN?

"If the unemployed formed a country,

it would be the fifth largest in the world."

 

Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF

GAN AS A SOLUTION

As a solution to one of the world's biggest social challenge 

the GAN is about jobs for youth.

GAN believes that work-readiness programs are part of the solution to the problems of youth unemployment and skills mismatch. In countries with high proportions of young apprentices relative to the employed population – such as Switzerland, Austria and Germany– youth unemployment is much lower.

Work-readiness programmes include training for apprentices, learners, trainees, interns, and artisans. They are key to create jobs for youth and skills for business and is a win-win for everyone. Find out what the benefits are for learners, employers, work-based learning providers and society below.
