Apprenticeship - Employment

An apprenticeship is offered to people whose employer agrees to provide them with on-the-job training while they continue to work and get paid. Apprenticeships typically offer a combination of on-the-job experience as well as in-class technical training. Most often, they are offered in construction, industrial trades, motive power and the services sector. There are many to choose from. Being able to earn while you learn offers opportunities for you to complete your training, managing your financial situation and gain invaluable work experience, all at the same time. Apprenticeship incentive grants and Canada apprentice loans are available to help you pay for your apprenticeship, and tax credits and benefits are available to trade persons and apprentices upon completion of their programs. Are you considering an apprenticeship? Would you like more information regarding the types of programs available, as well as the requirements to apply? Are you wondering if an apprenticeship is right for you, or for your child, a family member or friend? We have the answers and resources you are looking for.

Apprenticeship in a Globalised World

Premises, Promises and Pitfalls

In April 2013, the International Network on Innovative Apprenticeship (INAP) hosted its fifth international conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, in co-operation with the International Labor Organization (ILO), bringing together researchers, policy makers, and practitioners from 34 nations. The title of the conference - "Apprenticeship in a Globalized World: Premises, Promises and Pitfalls" - points out the need for apprenticeship to deliver on its promise of workplace skills and for it to develop and change as world economies develop. An international exchange of ideas among researchers from all over the world is necessary to identify cases of good practice and facilitate the transfer of knowledge and innovation, also within the frame of informal apprenticeships. This book, a summary of the papers presented and discussed at the Johannesburg conference, is split up equally into five key topics: Introducing Apprenticeship: Backgrounds, Changes, and Difficulties * Enabling Learning Opportunities in Workplaces and Informal Contexts * Competence Assessment and Development * Managing Transitions from VET into the World of Work * Curriculum Design, Apprenticeships, and National Qualification Frameworks. (Series: Bildung und Arbeitswelt - Vol. 27)

With rising costs of higher education and worrying levels of graduate unemployment, many people are choosing to balance their professional training with the financial security of employment. But what are the options for those looking to gain qualifications without taking on high levels of debt? And what grants or funding may be available across the UK? This new title, published in conjunction with The Times, looks at the many ways in which learning can be initiated, re-started or continued while still earning money. From the more obvious routes of apprenticeships, to part-time learning through City & Guilds or the Open University, Learn While You Earn examines the full range of opportunities for those looking to broaden their skill base - whether they are a job seeker, in employment or in higher education.
