To join the SAPS project - Supporting Apprenticeships between Professional Higher Education & Small and Medium Enterprises

The SAPS Project stands for Supporting Apprenticeships between Professional Higher Education & Small and Medium Enterprises, and aims at improving the perception of SMEs of the benefits of engaging interns/apprentices from professional higher education (PHE) Institutions; lowering the barriers to cooperation between PHE Institutions and SMEs; and establishing more regular and structured cooperation between the umbrella organizations for PHE and organizations representing SMEs.
