The purpose of this report is to use ideas gained from other national apprenticeship systems to put forward options for the Indian system. These countries are Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt, South Africa, Australia, Canada, USA, England, Germany and France. While this report attempts to evaluate the applicability of the proposed options, it is acknowledged that the suitability of the options is best determined by those with detailed experience and knowledge of the Indian system. Moreover, it needs to be stated that a complete new framework for the system has not been proposed. Experience in other countries has shown clearly that systems cannot be transplanted from one national culture to another; however, individual features of national systems can be introduced or adapted with considerable utility at particular points in time.
