Abstract

This paper focuses on the nature and future of apprenticeships. It is important to have a clear notion about apprenticeship or rather of how the concept is used today. Apprenticeships are regarded as one promising way of a well organised TVET (Technical Vocational Education
and Training). Generally, apprenticeships as a basic element of TVET should be well integrated into the education system. The topical move of reinventing apprenticeship in England, France and other countries around the world is part of a policy-driven agenda. In classical “dual-system” countries like Germany, Austria and Switzerland apprenticeships have to adapt to a new context as well. The future of apprenticeship will be a
hybrid form of work-based practice and school-oriented learning.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
