An apprenticeship is an exciting combination of learning in an educational institution and work-based learning with a company. The apprenticeship model provides the opportunity to earn a salary as an employee while gaining on the job knowledge and skills to support classroom-based learning.
A salary is paid to the apprentice for the duration of their apprenticeship training. An apprenticeship leads to a nationally recognised qualification under the NFQ framework
