Apprenticeship training in England - a cost-effective model for firms?

To address the challenges for an apprenticeship system in England and to ensure that policymaking is evidence-based, the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Bertelsmann Stiftung and the Education Policy Institute partnered with Prof. Dr. Stefan C. Wolter and Eva Joho from the University of Bern and the Swiss Leading House on Economics of Education to explore alternative delivery models for apprenticeships in England. The report «Apprenticeship in England – a cost-effective model for firms?» analyses what the benefit for firms would be if a Swiss-style apprenticeship model was adopted. The report suggests that, when it comes to apprenticeships, one size won’t fit all, as benefits vary across sectors and company sizes and depend on parameters such as the apprentice’s salary.
