What is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a system in which workers train on-the-job while learning a particular skill or set of skills.
Most apprenticeships can last between one and four years and provide work experience and a recognized industry credential that lasts a lifetime.
Registered Apprenticeship programs are customizable to match the employer’s needs and are highly flexible in order to always meet the employer’s changing requirements. Registered Apprenticeships benefit employers by providing a pipeline of skilled workers with industry-specific training and hands-on experience. Apprenticeships can also lower the cost of recruitment.
