The YEO Network: Redefining Work-Based Learning in a Changing World of Work


* Free webinar
* Date: 24 April 2018
* Time: 9 a.m. - 10 a.m. EDT


Apprenticeships have long been used to combine learning and earning on the job, while also meeting the needs of employers. Yet today's apprenticeships go by different names, such as work-based learning, and can take many forms that tap a range of ages and skill levels, and engage existing as well as new employers. What is increasingly evident is that applied learning on the job can help improve young people's chances for life-long learning and earning - critical in an economy characterized by disruption and a rapidly evolving workplace.


What will you achieve:

- Learn about the value and the role of apprenticeships to address youth economic opportunity;
- Deepen their understanding of new and innovative models for apprenticeships; how employers adapt
  these models for work-based learning across different industries (and regional perspectives); identify
  some of the key challenges and opportunities associated with starting and implementing
  apprenticeship programs;
- Hear directly from leading global companies about what incentivizes employers to support work-based
  learning.
