Global per­spec­ti­ves on inno­va­ti­ve app­ren­ti­ce­ship training

The ILO publication examines how innovative apprenticeships prepare people for lifelong learning to keep pace with changes in the labour market.

New tech­no­lo­gies, demo­gra­phic changes, climate change, glo­ba­li­sa­ti­on and, more recently, crises such as the COVID 19 pandemic are causing signi­fi­cant dis­rup­ti­on in the world of work. Against this backdrop, it is becoming incre­a­sing­ly important to build a flexible workforce capable of navi­ga­ting the rapidly changing labour market through appro­pria­te and timely skills deve­lo­p­ment, retrai­ning and ups­kil­ling. The use of app­ren­ti­ce­ship models or dual training systems can be an effective solution to the chal­lenges of the future labour market bridging the gap between education and training systems and the world of work.

The report “Towards lifelong learning and skills for the future of work: Global lessons from inno­va­ti­ve app­ren­ti­ce­ships” high­lights the new role of app­ren­ti­ce­ships within lifelong learning systems. It was produced in the research project “Apprenticeship Development for Universal Lifelong Learning and Training (ADULT)” of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). Andrew McCoshan (Educational Disadvantage Centre Dublin City University) and Jörg Markowitsch (3s) bring together in it the findings from six thematic reports and three addi­tio­nal topics.
