Apprenticeships work as a three-way partnership between you (the apprentice), your employer, and the trainer, college, or university running your apprenticeship course. You benefit from practical hands-on experience and earning a fair wage, plus in-classroom learning which will hopefully result in a qualification. Apprenticeships work for employers because they gain a minimum-wage employee they can train up and mold as they wish.
Many employers see taking on an apprentice as investing in the future of the business. There are also financial incentives for employers who offer apprenticeships.
