Apprentice Recruitment Agencies

Apprenticeship is a training system that involves on-the-job study. It often accompanies classwork and enables practitioners to gain a practice licence. These typically take 3-7 years and once completed, apprentices attain professional certification. The concept is widely practised in guilds and trade unions.

Apprenticeships differ from internships largely in terms of formality. Apprenticeships will have a formal signed contract while internships will not. Internships also generally do not last longer than 12 months and may not be paid.
