The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are organising their third joint symposium on 'Apprenticeship and the digital transition', on 15 and 16 June 2023 in Thessaloniki.
The event will explore the links between apprenticeships and the digital transition, and their implications for policy-making, bringing together policy-makers, practitioners and researchers from around the world.
The symposium will explore the link between apprenticeship and the digital transition in two strands:
- What is the impact of digitalisation on the demand for apprenticeship training (e.g. in terms of new or redefined skills, occupations, programmes, curricula, etc.)?
- What is the impact of digitalisation on apprenticeship training supply (e.g. teaching and training methodologies, training of teachers and trainers to use new technologies, etc.)?
The event will be built around papers that present new evidence or offer analysis on the challenges and opportunities that digitalisation already brings or may bring for apprenticeships in the future. Paper presentations will be complemented with presentations by Cedefop and the OECD, panel discussions and Q&A sessions with participants.
