4.1 Alliances for effective apprenticeships

Details

What makes up a successful national apprenticeship system? Multi-level governance, accompanied with effective coordination and sustainable financing are a key factor. Robust systems are underpinned by collective and proactive efforts by all stakeholders, including employers, training providers, unions and government.

Policies developed at the national level can be adapted to the local context and translate into multiple national approaches. Businesses are essential in integrating broader objectives into their practical day-to-day reality. Increasing the overall participation of the productive sector in vocational education and training systems would help identify needs and shape apprenticeships to meet the skills demands.

This session will review existing national alliances, coalitions, and networks and their role in ensuring quality work-based learning, as well as building confidence in apprenticeships systems within communities and industry.
