Document Highlights

Germany’s approach of ongoing review and reform has created a well-coordinated apprenticeship system that other countries look to for ideas and inspiration. Collaboration between governments, businesses, and other stakeholders, as well as a nimble reform process, help align training programs with innovations and changes in the workplace, creating more employable apprentices.

Canada should look to the ongoing improvement process in Germany to inform its own efforts to enhance apprenticeship opportunities and systems.
