Apprenticeships – An analytical framework for analysing systems and schemes

Cedefop’s analytical framework for apprenticeships is a tool for analysing apprenticeship systems and schemes in Europe and, possibly, beyond.

Cedefop’s analytical framework for apprenticeships is not modelled on a single recommended type of apprenticeship system or scheme – it draws on features that appear to work in more than one apprenticeship system or scheme and summarises key elements they share, to different extents and in different combinations. It also provides a standardised definition of apprenticeship and outlines several areas of analysis, which are further articulated into operational descriptors.

It was originally developed by Cedefop as a methodological tool for the country reviews on apprenticeships the Agency conducted in nine EU countries between 2014 and 2018, as part of its direct support to Member States. The first version of the analytical framework was further devel- oped taking into account the ex- periences of participating countries and the conceptual work from Cedefop’s cross-nation overview of apprenticeships.

Cedefop’s analytical framework for apprenticeships is not modelled on a single recommended type of apprenticeship system or scheme – it draws on features that appear to work in more than one apprenticeship system or scheme and summarises key elements they share, to di erent extents and in di erent combinations. It also provides a standardised de nition of appren- ticeship and outlines several areas of analysis, which are further articulated into operational descriptors.

This framework is not intended as an exhaustive list of necessary conditions or an assessment tool. It works as a frame of reference for: reviewing key elements of existing/evolving systems or schemes; checking what is fore- seen in regulations and how this works in practice; and identifying common stakeholder perceptions and ambi- tions regarding their apprenticeship systems and schemes.
