Apprenticeships Development for Universal Lifelong Learning and Training (ADULT)
Country-level report: Apprenticeships for adults and older workers in Finland
This report was compiled under the ILO’s research project – Apprenticeship Development for Universal Lifelong Learning and Training (ADULT) – funded by the Government of Flanders. The project aims to explore how apprenticeship systems are being modernised and transformed to promote and enable lifelong learning and decent work for youth, adults, and older workers (both employed and unemployed). The country-level report “Apprenticeships for adults and older workers in Finland” has been produced by the ILO as part of the ADULT project. It provides an overview of the VET system and alignment with the general education system in Finland and highlights elements relating to the development of adult apprenticeships. The report also highlights the policies, guidelines and strategy undertaken by the country for promotion of adult apprenticeships so as to make them attractive for adults, employers and TVET institutes alike.
