Engaging Employers in Apprenticeship Opportunities

Making It Happen Locally

This joint OECD-ILO publication provides guidance on how local and regional governments can foster business-education partnerships in apprenticeship programmes and other types of work-based learning, drawing on case studies across nine countries. There has been increasing interest in apprenticeships which combine on the job training with classroom-based study, providing a smooth transition from school to work. There are benefits to both individuals and employers from participating in apprenticeships, including increased productivity and job quality. Successful implementation is contingent on having a high level of employer engagement at the local level, notably in the design, development and delivery of programmes.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter explores the impact and effectiveness of enterprise-embedded apprenticeship programmes in the context of the construction industry of Western Australia. The case study features a “whole of life” pathway for apprentices to make the transition from secondary education to full-time work through a range of experiences and opportunities provided through a single company. The relationship between the apprenticeship scheme and the broader economic context of Western Australia is also explored.
