This report presents the main findings of the ILO survey on national initiatives to promote quality apprenticeships in the G20 member states.
How the apprenticeships help to move youth into decent jobs and help enterprises to find the workforce they need for the future.
Persons with disabilities face many challenges to entering the labour market, including negative preconceptions about their work capacities and lower educational achievements due to exclusionary training practices. Apprenticeships and workplace learning can effectively respond to many of the challenges by proving to employers the professional potential of disabled persons and improving their vocational skills.
The ‘Skills 21 – Empowering citizens for inclusive and sustainable growth’ project, which is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the ILO, was formally launched at a ceremony held in Dhaka on 28 May 2018.
Issue Brief 8
This Issue Brief is part of the Future of Work briefs prepared by the ILO. It provides an overview of skills requirements for the future of work and considers how skills development systems might be transformed to meet these needs. The brief also raises questions about the financing of lifelong learning, as well as about the respective responsibilities of governments, enterprises and workers.
The toolkit provides state of the art information and guidance for the design and implementation of quality apprenticeship schemes across different contexts. The new guide was introduced by the ILO Director-General Guy Ryder during the launch of the engagement platform of the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth, held on 29 November 2017.
Policy Briefs in the series are authored by the technical specialists of the Skills and Employability Department and aim to present a short overview of particular areas related to skills development, policies and systems, and training.
