Glossary Term: Apprenticeship


An apprenticeship is part of many educational or developmental tracks in which a new generation of practitioners of an expertise or profession is prepared by accumulating on-the-job experiences, often accompanied by some study. Apprenticeships can also be a mandatory part of a process for practitioners to gain a license for regulated occupations.

Why are apprenticeships good?

Apprenticeships often are specifically oriented around developing the skills that employers want. This may in turn lead to better long-term salary prospects and improved employability. It also offers valuable practical experience that comes in handy both when entering the labor market as well as when choosing to continue studying.

How long is an apprenticeship?

While most apprenticeships span across 1-6 years, there are shorter apprenticeships of e.g. 6 months depending on the study and context.
