German Apprenticeship Program Tour

June 3-7, 2019 - Munich, Germany

For several years, the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education have touted the importance of growing registered apprenticeship programs (RAP) in the United States. Experts in this area cite the German model as the world’s best example for designing an effective and efficient apprenticeship system. For centuries, they have relied on industry-based relationships that include the secondary educational level in order to produce most of their journey-workers. This is in stark contrast to the post-secondary leanings of the +70-year old U.S. model. Join us for this exclusive tour and see firsthand how the German model for apprentices operates and learn best practices that you can implement in your own program.
