Working paper: How to strengthen informal apprenticeship systems for a better future of work? Lessons learned from comparative analysis of country cases.
Publication Date: 20 Apr 2022
Source: ILO

This paper undertakes a meta study on informal apprenticeship in developing countries. It compares the findings of country-level research conducted by the ILO and others in the past 15 years to shed more light on apprenticeship systems in the informal economy. It discusses the features and practices of informal ap-prenticeship systems, their responsiveness to rights at work, and the effectiveness of such systems along criteria such as dropouts, training quality, and transitions to employment. The analysis is complemented by a selected number of country case studies that describe and assess the policies and programmes that were introduced during past years to strengthen and upgrade apprenticeship systems in the informal economy. The findings aim to improve understanding of this complex, heterogenous, yet self-sustained training system in the informal economy for evidence-based discussions and policy dialogue between ILO constituents and beyond.

This report presents the findings of an assessment of Tanzania’s workforce development (WfD) system based on 
the World Bank’s Systems Approach for Better Education Results (SABER) WfD systems benchmarking tool. The 
focus is on policies, institutions, and practices in three important system dimensions: strategic framework, system oversight, and service delivery. By systematically benchmarking the state of policies and practices across these 
three  dimensions,  this  report aims  to inform  dialogue  on important WfD  system  reforms  by  situating current  policies and institutional performance against global good practices.

Case Study: The role of apprenticeships in the informal economy for skills development in Tanzania

The Tanzanian government first recognized the importance of informal education and training in its 1995
Education and Training Policy, which states that nonformal and informal education and training shall be
“recognized, promoted, strengthened, coordinated and integrated into the formal education and training system”. Until 2011, however, implementation of these policy pronouncements, grounded in careful analysis of labour market and training needs, was lacking.

Digitalization in teaching and education in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda and the United Republic of Tanzania

The first set of studies was launched in February 2020 to capture the changes taking place in the education sector in relation to digitalization, including challenges, best practices and the impacts on the teaching profession. The declaration of the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic in March 2020 resulted in calls for the rapid and widespread uptake of technology in the delivery of education. With education systems accelerating efforts in response to the crisis, in August 2020, follow-up studies were launched in the countries to document these efforts and the implications for the teaching profession, as well as long-term strategies and plans.

ILO Inter-regional workshop on enhancing youth employability and easing labour market transitions
Date: 18 - 20 May 2016
Sources: ILO

The Youth Employment Programme and Skills and Employability Branch are organizing a regional workshop on the theme of enhancing youth employability and easing labour market transitions. This three-day interregional event is part of a series of ‘What Works in Youth Employment’ Knowledge Sharing Events to facilitate learning and dialogue through evidence-based ‘good practices’.

The objective of the workshop is to bring together stakeholders (including our tripartite constituents) from nine African countries (Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, and Zambia) in an interactive forum for exchange and peer learning with guidance from technical experts on effective, replicable and scalable supply side initiatives that address employability, skills demand, anticipation of skills needs and the bridges between supply and demand. A report based on exchanges and lessons learned during the workshop will be produced.
