How Did England Generate Two Million Apprenticeships?

On October 26, the Urban Institute, New Work Training, and the American Institute for Innovative Apprenticeship hosted the inaugural Transatlantic Apprenticeship Exchange Forum. The forum aimed to forge closer working relationships and new models of collaboration between apprenticeship providers, organizations, and policymakers in Europe and their American counterparts. Several UK-based community colleges and independent training providers shared their experiences in persuading employers to hire apprentices, thereby helping to achieve a tripling of apprenticeships in England.
