The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum is accepting article submissions on alternate delivery methods of apprenticeship technical training for an upcoming edition of the Canadian Apprenticeship Journal.

Articles must be submitted by April 28 at 12 p.m. eastern daylight time, says a news release from the forum. The articles should be no longer than 5,000 words or 12 pages. Shorter articles of 800 to 2,000 words on specific programs are also welcome.

The forum noted in the release that the federal government’s Flexibility and Innovation in Apprenticeship Training Initiative is currently funding 10 pilot projects that “are experimenting with online learning, upfront training, mobile labs and simulator training.”

Articles must be submitted in Microsoft Word format but can be in French or English. Chosen articles will be published in their language of submission.


Themes of the issue will include:

• Alternate delivery solutions that work for apprentice learners.

• Examples of initiatives from across sectors and jurisdictions.

• Impact of alternate delivery on completion, grades and learner outcomes.

• Breaking down barriers for rural/Northern apprentices and/or under-represented groups.

• Challenges and opportunities alternate delivery poses for training providers and apprentices.

Submissions should be sent by email to
