ApprenticeshipA system of training regulated by law or custom that combines on-the-job training and work experience while in paid employment with formal off-the-job training.

Traditionally, apprenticeships were in trade occupations (declared vocations) and were of four years duration. See also New Apprenticeships and Traineeships.
