Towards a model apprenticeship framework: A comparative analysis of national apprenticeship systems

This ILO-World Bank report is based on eleven country case studies of national apprenticeship systems.

The ILO and World Bank in 2012 jointly conducted a study to review international experience in apprenticeships and identify good practice principles based on the cross-country analysis. This report contains case studies on eleven countries’ apprenticeship systems, a cross-case analysis and the development of a framework for a model apprenticeship system.

The purpose of the country case studies was
first, to obtain accurate and current information about countries’ apprenticeship systems. The second purpose was to obtain targeted information about key features and trends that could be used to develop a model apprenticeship system.
