Adapting To Globalised Product And Labour Markets: New Models For Apprenticeship in Europe

Publication year: 2007

Hilary Steedman

The paper identifies two distinct models of apprenticeship in Europe: the well-established demand-driven model found and the more recently revived supply-driven model. The paper concludes that countries without a strong apprenticeship tradition can achieve some of the benefits of apprenticeship by implementing a supply-driven model provided that standards and quality are protected by regulation and/or by integration into more established provision.
