Apprenticeships are industry-sponsored programs that combine on-the-job training with classroom instruction for people interested in entering a trade. An apprenticeship is not an internship. Internships are often short-term and are generally unpaid. Apprenticeships are an “earn while you learn” opportunity: apprentices get paid for their work during the day and see wage increases as they progress through the program.
