What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are training programs that use both classroom and on-the-job learning.

The idea of apprenticeships is to prepare people for careers in industries such as manufacturing, construction and new emerging industries (information technology, energy, etc.).

Apprenticeships help job seekers learn new skills, making them more marketable to employers seeking qualified workers.

Apprenticeship programs can be through individual employers, joint employer and labor groups, and/or employer associations.
