Document Abstract

Best practice in the design and delivery of pre-apprenticeship programmes

Identifies ways in which organisations can design and deliver effective pre-apprenticeship programmes, drawing on case studies highlighting good practice across Europe. Explains that pre-apprenticeship programmes are those targeted at young people aged 16-24 where the main aim is progression to an apprenticeship, and outlines the methodology used in the study. Presents findings highlighting best practice in relation to: entry to pre-apprenticeship programmes; programme design and delivery; partnerships and employer engagement; supporting progression to apprenticeships; and monitoring and evaluation. Identifies the lessons learned relating to the key elements of pre-apprenticeship programmes, and presents five detailed case studies from Spain, UK, Ireland, France and Germany.
