The International Network on
Innovative Apprenticeship

Welcome to the INAP Network!

The International Network on Innovative Apprenticeship (INAP) is an association of researchers and research institutions in vocational education and training. It has been founded in 2006 within the frame of the 14th Hochschultage Berufliche Bildung carried out by the University of Bremen. Since its foundation, INAP conferences are regularly held. In Washington 2017, around 120 Researchers from Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and North America confirmed the assumption that the new interest in dual vocational education and training is stimulating more and more national and international research and development projects as well as policy initiatives towards the re-establishment of dual vocational education. The network aims at reaching a brought audience of TVET researchers by publishing current research results and conference proceedings.

The latest conference has been held from March 21st - 22nd, 2019 at the University of Konstanz, Germany, in 2019.

It pointed to various issues linked to contemporary apprenticeship reforms and reconfigurations, which indicates the need for apprenticeships to deliver on its promise of workplace skills and for it to evolve and also to change as the world economies develop.
