From July 31 to August 4, 2023, took place in Pretoria, South Africa, the “High-level Policy Dialogue and Capacity Building Workshop on Quality Apprenticeship”, organized by the International Labour Organization as part of a South South and Triangular Cooperation project.
This workshop targeted apprenticeship policymakers from China, Ethiopia, India, and South Africa, aiming to enhance their abilities in identifying policy options and innovative solutions. The objective was to reform their respective national apprenticeship systems by implementing these solutions.
These representatives utilized inputs on quality apprenticeship and insights from successful initiatives to formulate policy options and solutions for improving their apprenticeship systems. Implementation of the draft action plan was expected within a defined timeframe.
The workshop involved sharing successful apprenticeship practices, including visits to enterprises showcasing their accomplishments. The Policy Dialogue was a reflective process involving diverse interest groups discussing mutual but not necessarily identical concerns. This approach recognized varied perspectives and interests among stakeholders, aiming to achieve shared understandings and agreed solutions to policy-related issues.
