What is apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are a great way to enter a number of well-paying occupations in health care and life sciences, among other industries. An apprentice will receive hands-on work experiences, in addition to classroom learning under the supervision of a professional. This helps participants to learn all the aspects of a highly skilled occupation. This is called an earn-while-you-learn model.
These programs are sponsored by employers and provide wage increases as you gain work experience. Ultimately, apprenticeship programs develop skilled employees, increase retention rates, lower the cost of recruitment and increase productivity and safety within the workplace.
