New report defines world-class apprenticeships as those rooted in sector skills, knowledge and progression to employment

Analysis of leading countries points to defining features of world-class apprenticeships with lessons for the Middle East

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 29th 2016 – A new report has been released in the Middle East from the University of Derby, supported by Pearson, which looks at some of the world’s most heralded apprenticeship systems. The report is particularly useful for the Middle East, where many countries, such as the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, look to vocational education as a means through which economic diversification and reduced economic reliance on oil can be achieved.

The report’s main author, Dr Ruth Mieschbuehler, interviewed some of the world’s leading apprenticeship reformers in countries such as Germany, Denmark, Australia and the Netherlands. The following characteristics are identified in the report as being particularly important for a strong apprenticeship system:

  • extended apprenticeships of between three to four years;
  • broad and in-depth scientific and industrial skills and knowledge;
  • the presence of a ‘master’ in the company to train an apprentice;
  • high-quality knowledge-based education and training;
  • recognition through an occupational title on completion of the training;
  • apprentices to acquire all the skills and knowledge necessary to work effectively in an occupation;
  • apprentices to become skilled workers in an occupational area with a critical and creative approach; and
  • progression routes into employment as well as into further education and training.

The hosted seminars and presentations on subjects that bridge the gap between education and industry will reinforce ties with the business community. Unlike other advertising mediums, GETEX offers tangible returns on exhibitor investments as much of the recruitment happens on the exhibition floor. Students across all age groups will have access to more than 2,500 international academic, training and vocational programs during the three-day event.

Anselm Godinho, Managing Director of International Conferences & Exhibitions, the organizer of GETEX, said: “For nearly three decades, GETEX has provided a vital link between learners and professionals seeking prime education and education providers, offering the best study programmes for aspiring students. The 2016 edition of GETEX will cater to a broader audience in response to growing demand in specific industry sectors such as Medicine, Engineering and Finance along with a host of vocational trades. School officials, faculty, parents and students of all ages will appreciate the vast array of study options that GETEX has to offer. Exhibitors, on the other hand, will have an easier time pursuing their admissions targets and enrolment quotas courtesy of the show.”

It is organized by International Conferences & Exhibitions (IC&E), one of the longest standing international exhibition houses in the region. Last year’s edition received 35,500 visitors, 63 per cent of whom were high school students looking for undergraduate programmes, 23 per cent mature learners seeking postgraduate education options, 12 per cent professionals interested in occupational education and training courses, and 2 per cent faculty, career guidance counsellors and visitors from education regulatory authorities around the Middle East.
