An Apprenticeship is a programme of structured education and training which formally combines and alternates learning in the work place with learning in an education or training centre. It is a dual system, a blended combination of on-the-job employer-based training and off-the-job training.
In 2013 the Minister for Education and Skills, announced a review of apprenticeship training in Ireland which resulted in the formation of the Apprenticeship Council and from this the National Apprenticeship System.
