Learn a skilled trade while working at the same time.
There are many exciting and rewarding careers as apprentice. An apprenticeship is a form of job training that enables you to learn by doing. As an apprentice you work under the supervision of a person skilled in the job you wish to learn. That individual teaches you how to do the work. As part of all apprenticeships, there is an in-school educational component. Once you have found an employer willing to teach you the trade, contact the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development and officially register as an apprentice. For details regarding the traditional apprenticeship system, see the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development website.
