Plus c’est la même chose: joinery apprenticeship arrangements in Scotland

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This paper examines recent changes in the Scottish apprenticeship system of skill formation for joiners through an occupational skill ecosystem lens. Building trade apprenticeships in Scotland are based around a social partnership model more akin to ‘dual systems’ than typical arrangements elsewhere in the UK. Drawing on in-depth occupational case study primary data gathered in the ‘boom’ period, this paper argues that whilst joinery apprenticeships in Scotland are far from
    perfect they are relatively successful in serving the needs of industry and maintaining quality.
