ILO - 2007. The Skills and Employability Department has organized a workshop which brought together experts from ILO, academics and development agencies to discuss apprenticeship as a main provider of skills and competences in the informal economy. It identified critical issues and policy challenges with regard to skills development and decent work. Furthermore, experts shared knowledge and lessons learnt in the West Africa region on effective policies and best practice to upgrade and improve apprenticeship systems. The workshop thus contributed to fostering and informing the policy debate on apprenticeship in the informal economy and discussed apprenticeship as an entry point for ILO activities in the informal economy and Decent Work Country Programmes.
