Apprenticeship - Education

An apprenticeship is offered to people whose employer agrees to provide them with on-the-job training while they continue to work and get paid. Apprenticeships typically offer a combination of on-the-job experience as well as in-class technical training. Most often, they are offered in construction, industrial trades, motive power and the services sector. There are many to choose from. Being able to earn while you learn offers opportunities for you to complete your training while also managing your financial situation. Apprenticeship incentive grants and Canada apprentice loans are available to help you pay for your apprenticeship, and tax credits and benefits are available to trade persons and apprentices upon completion of their programs. Are you considering an apprenticeship? Would you like more information regarding the types of programs available, as well as the requirements to apply? Are you wondering if an apprenticeship is right for you, or for your child, a family member or friend? We have the answers you are looking for.

The Apprenticeship System in Its Relation to Industrial Education. Bulletin, 1908, No. 6. Whole Number 389

The interest in industrial education which has arisen in this country has brought into new prominence the whole system of training for trades by a regular course of apprenticeship. Education by apprenticeship and education by schools have gone on for many generations side by side as two entirely distinct and unrelated forms of education. The newer movements are concerned with bringing these two kinds of education together and making of them a new kind of education which shall train equally for skill and for intelligence. This new movement is attended with obvious difficulties. It is clear that among other things a better knowledge of the apprenticeship system as it is today is urgently needed. With a view to meeting this need, the author has prepared an account of the apprenticeship system. There can be no doubt that the desired combination of schooling and apprenticeship must be approached from many sides and will be accomplished in many ways. The treatment of apprenticeship presented by the author describes certain ways in which this combination may be effected, as shown by recent experience in a few of our leading industries. It will throw light also upon the subject as a whole, and will doubtless be of value even in those undertakings in which the problem is approached by altogether different ways. A list of reference relating to the education of apprentices is provided. Digest of apprentice laws in the United States is presented in an appendix. An index is also included. (Contains 3 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.].

Contemporary Apprenticeship

International Perspectives on an Evolving Model of Learning

Throughout the world, people understand the meaning of 'apprenticeship'. As a model of learning and skill formation, apprenticeship has adapted over the years to reflect changes in work, in technology, and in the types of knowledge that underpin occupational expertise. Apprenticeship serves the needs of government, as well as employers, individuals and society more generally. These needs have always co-existed in dynamic tension. This book explores the contemporary state of apprenticeship in Europe, the United States, Canada, and Ghana. The chapters present perspectives from leading researchers in the field, showing how apprenticeship is evolving and changing in every country (crossing boundaries of age, sector and levels of skill and knowledge) and examining the ability of apprenticeship to facilitate both vertical progression – particularly to higher education – and horizontal progression between jobs and sectors. As such, apprenticeship remains at the core of debates about vocational learning and the nature of expertise. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Vocational Education and Training.

Apprenticeship in a Globalised World

Premises, Promises and Pitfalls

In April 2013, the International Network on Innovative Apprenticeship (INAP) hosted its fifth international conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, in co-operation with the International Labor Organization (ILO), bringing together researchers, policy makers, and practitioners from 34 nations. The title of the conference - "Apprenticeship in a Globalized World: Premises, Promises and Pitfalls" - points out the need for apprenticeship to deliver on its promise of workplace skills and for it to develop and change as world economies develop. An international exchange of ideas among researchers from all over the world is necessary to identify cases of good practice and facilitate the transfer of knowledge and innovation, also within the frame of informal apprenticeships. This book, a summary of the papers presented and discussed at the Johannesburg conference, is split up equally into five key topics: Introducing Apprenticeship: Backgrounds, Changes, and Difficulties * Enabling Learning Opportunities in Workplaces and Informal Contexts * Competence Assessment and Development * Managing Transitions from VET into the World of Work * Curriculum Design, Apprenticeships, and National Qualification Frameworks. (Series: Bildung und Arbeitswelt - Vol. 27)

The Architecture of Innovative Apprenticeship

Benefiting from the support and involvement of two major international research networks, this collection features the latest research findings in TVET. Members of INAP, the International Network on Innovative Apprenticeship, and VETNET, the Vocational Education and Training Network, have contributed key research findings to this detailed survey of the field. Featuring the inclusion of the internationally recognized memorandum released in April 2012 by the INAP Architecture Apprenticeship Commission, the volume covers a wealth of issues relating to technical and vocational education and training, including exemplar architectures such as successful school-to-work transitions, competence assessment and development models, and governance, including the role of stakeholders. The book provides many opportunities to explore in depth the scholarly debate on TVET, as well as to learn from positive international experiences. It aims to inform the practice of TVET professionals as much as the decision making of administrators.
