This monograph provides an analytical comparison of the background and evaluation of apprenticeship in the eight European countries of Austria, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, France, The Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Its primary purpose is to determine how the rules and conditions of apprenticeship have been and are likely to be influenced by rapid technical development and how training has been adapted to changing conditions of work. The basic patterns of the institutions of apprenticeship in these countries are all highly traditional in their general structure. Some of the laws and regulations which today govern the relationship between master and apprentice date back to the second half of the 19th century. However, some of the changes introduced may have been revolutionary in the country concerned. The adoption of day-time related instruction in Denmark, the extension of apprenticeship to the industrial and commercial fields in the Netherlands, the new powers given to public authorities and the introduction of a levy system in the United Kingdom have all constituted profound changes in the national pattern of training.
