Apprenticeship

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship combines on-the-job training under the supervision of a qualified tradesperson and classroom training at a training establishment.

About 80 per cent of an apprentice’s training takes place on the job. The other 20 per cent involves technical training usually provided at or through a post-secondary training establishment, such as a college or union-approved training facility.
