What’s an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a period of time during which you are contracted to a host employer to learn about a particular trade while you concurrently undertake trade related vocational training. It is the best way to combine employment and training in the knowledge industries. Apprenticeships and traineeships in the knowledge industries are available through PIIP to anyone of working age.
