Apprenticeship and internship are often used interchangeably when discussing workforce development. While the two share similarities, there are vast differences between the two.
An apprenticeship is a structured and formal training program designed to prepare people for skilled occupations through a combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. These programs are established by employers, industry associations and labor unions in collaboration with government agencies and educational institutions. Registered apprenticeships are known for their rigorous and standardized approach to workforce development.
An internship is a temporary work arrangement that provides people, often students or recent graduates, with an opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in a specific field or industry. Internships tend to have short durations and are intended to provide exposure to a real working environment. They can be paid or unpaid, but it is strongly recommended to offer a paid internship to attract quality talent to your business.
Both opportunities are readily available in our community. If you need help getting started, please contact BJ Beaver by emailing email@example.com.
