You may use the following checklist to evaluate the inclusiveness of your country’s apprenticeship system, to decide which elements could potentially be strengthened and to judge whether your system could be described as a Quality Apprenticeship system.
|Inclusiveness - opportunities for all
|In your country:
|Are statistics on apprenticeships and under-represented groups collected?
|Are there effective policy actions (e.g. awareness-raising campaigns) taken to encourage under-represented groups to take up apprenticeships?
|Do governments provide employers with incentives to take on apprentices from under-represented groups?
If you have answered “no” to any of these questions, it might be worth examining ways in which apprenticeship training in your country ensures opportunities for all. Inclusiveness is a key factor in the success and sustainability of Quality Apprenticeships for all.
