Most empirical research on skills (cognitive and non-cognitive) and preferences has largely relied on data from high-income, industrialized countries.

The joint Cedefop/OECD symposium on apprenticeship brings together policy makers, practitioners and researchers from around the world to consider new research exploring the next steps for apprenticeship provision.
