Abstract

For many years, traineeships have been used as an excuse for “hiring” cheap labour. This usual problem has been exacerbated by the economic crisis. The regulation approved by the European Council, on a Quality framework for traineeships, has great similarities with the regulation enforced in Spain a long time ago. This regulation has not achieved the expected results in this country, so it will be difficult for it to obtain them in its spreading throughout Europe. Thus, this study compares and analyses the failures of this type of regulation, in order to ensure quality traineeships for young people, and offers solutions to those failures through an alternative regulation, simplified and more effective.

Keywords: Quality framework for traineeships, traineeship, intern, young unemployment, internship, Spanish traineeship, European traineeships, employment contract for young people, youth labour exploitation.
