I would love to hear from anyone who has been in an apprenticeship
situation, either as the employer or the student. How was the relationship
started, was there government involvement? Educational institutions?
Was this a paid apprenticeship? The program which I found was co funded by
the University and Human Resources Development Canada (our Employment
Insurance agency Federal Government) The goal of the program was to help
small businesses and to encourage people to become involved in professions
that are considered part of our heritage. Some of the businesses involved
included, metalsmith, weaver, costume designer among others. The employer
had to invest the time and training into the employee. The employee was
paid a small salary by HRDC.
What kind of situations are out there?
