What is Apprentice?


An ‘Apprentice’ is a trainee who is working with skilled labour to learn the job for a limited period and is being paid a lower wage than a skilled worker. The apprenticeship could be either full-time or part-time.


A common misconception regarding apprentices is that it has to be a young college-goer. However, anybody can be an apprentice irrespective of his or her age, seniority and profession.


Being an apprentice requires dedication and hard work as an apprentice has to learn the job while doing it. Most apprentices spend 20% of their working time learning the job. However, the reward compensates for the hard work put in as the trainee gets relevant work experience, consistent practical learning, and the opportunity to handle the tools of the trade first hand.
