Links to Apprenticeship information:
Apprenticeship is hands-on training for motivated people who enjoy learning by doing. The training provides access to well-paying jobs that demand a high level of skills, judgment and creativity. Apprentices are paid while gaining work experience, and their wages increase with their level of skills.
