Apprenticeships are based on uniform, pre-specified and industry agreed standards.
Apprenticeships comply with current and future needs of the chosen occupation through the systematic development and assessment of skills, knowledge and competencies. Apprentices become more productive and reach efficient worker standards more quickly.
Employers wishing to recruit apprentices may advertise their vacancies on Jobs Ireland and also on www.apprenticeshipjobs.ie. However, before registering an apprentice, employers must contact the Apprenticeship Team to ensure that they are approved to recruit apprentices.
Useful employer information is also available from the National Apprenticeship Website.
