Apprenticeships are all about learning practical skills and gaining critical first hand experience while getting paid for the opportunity.
The ultimate goal in an apprenticeship is to train you in the skills and knowledge you need to be qualified in your chosen field, after all, you wouldn’t want your car fixed by someone who didn’t know the difference between a spark plug and an ignition coil, or your three course meal prepared by someone who hadn’t cooked a meal in their life would you?
It takes study and training to become an expert in something and a trade is no different. The best thing about an apprenticeship is that it combines work and training so that you are actually getting paid to learn your trade.
So if you’re a person who likes to learn by doing then an apprenticeship may be for you.
