To further our understanding of apprenticeships, UNESCO-UNEVOC organized a virtual conference from 15 to 26 June 2015 on UNESCO-UNEVOC’s e-forum. Moderated by Alessandra Molz, a researcher in the area of workplace learning and skills development, in particular apprenticeship systems and social inclusion, the virtual conference explored the characteristics of modern and formal quality apprenticeships, examined the challenges found in formal and informal apprenticeship systems, and analysed the conditions needed to promote quality apprenticeships. The two-week conference was participated by 229 participants from 70 countries. An important message taken from the virtual conference is that apprenticeship systems operate within the wider context of a country’s cultural traditions, norms, socio-economic conditions and individual aspirations.
