The workshop brought together researchers and experts in the field, mainly from the countries with well-established (and researched) apprenticeship system - Austria, Australia, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and UK - and also the representatives of the European Commission and the ETF. The participants sought to answer the following questions:
- What are the criteria for well-performing/modern apprenticeship system?
- What are countries’ models of governance and financing of apprenticeship and how these (may) affect the performance of apprenticeship system?
- What are the conceptual frameworks and possible methods for assessing governance and financing of apprenticeship?
- How to assist the countries in developing apprenticeship system? What are the lessons learned from the previous transfers of policy and practice?
