Craft Apprenticeships

A craft apprenticeship is the recognised means by which people are trained to become craftspeople in this country, which generally is of 4 years duration. The main craft trades have been designated by Solas in co-operation with the Department of Education and Skills and trade unions. Such craft skills are mainly in the areas of Construction, Electrical and Engineering. An apprenticeship provides on-the-job training with an employer. This means that in order to enter an apprenticeship, one must first obtain an employer who will sponsor a person for the specified training.
