December 15, 2015

Canada might wish to emulate Germany if it wants to improve its apprenticeship system, according to a new report from the Conference Board of Canada. The report highlights Germany’s “nimble reform process” and its collaboration between governments, businesses, and other stakeholders as two of the primary factors behind its creation of highly employable apprentices. The study concludes that “Canada should look to the ongoing improvement process in Germany to inform its own efforts to enhance apprenticeship opportunities and systems.” Report
