We have come across the word ‘apprentice’ a decent number of times in our lives. Before we reach to the crux of understanding what is the apprenticeship training scheme, we must understand who is an apprentice.
An apprentice is someone who gains skills and qualification while working for another person or firm and is bounded by an agreement to work for a specific period of time. An apprentice is basically any beginner who is new to work life. Apprenticeship is a job with wages which also provides training. Some apprenticeship programs include on-job-training accompanied by studies as well. Apprenticeship must not be confused with an internship. Unlike internships, apprenticeships are for the longer term, pay is high and you get a job after it.
