Description Apprenticeship is the recognised means by which people are trained to become craftspeople in Ireland. Apprenticeship is a
demand-driven, workplace and classroom, educational and training programme for employed people aimed at developing the
skills required to satisfactorily perform the core skills of their chosen trade and to meet the needs of industry and the labour
The apprenticeship system is a modular standards-based system generally comprising of 7 alternating phases of on-the-job and
off-the-job training and development. These alternating phases of training consist of 3 off-the-job and 4 on-the-job phases. The
duration of the 3 off-the-job training phases does not normally exceed 40 weeks.
The off-the-job phases are delivered by a FÁS Training Centre, an Institute of Technology or another approved training provider.
The key factor in delivery of an off-the-job training phase is that it is delivered in a single training environment to ensure the
integration of practical training with the necessary theoretical and personal skills.
