:

Apprenticeship is a method by which a person works for an employer in his or her chosen trade and learns the necessary skills, knowledge and attitudes to become a qualified craftsperson.

Apprenticeship in Ireland is now standards based, which means you will undergo specific tests and assessments to ensure you achieve certain pre-set standards of skill and competence at each of the seven phases, before moving on to the next phase.
