Are Apprenticeships Fair In The Modern World?

There is an argument that apprenticeships still have a part to play in the modern world. They:-
  • Often offer opportunities for those not so strong on a academic front
  • Offer the chance to work from the bottom up, understanding the business in great detail
  • Allow individuals to earn respect and build working relationships which could last many years
  • Offer long term goals of full employment and a long term career
  • The pay is often low in comparison to full time workers
  • The hours can be tough
  • Seeing out a full apprenticeships can be a challenge - leaving only those fully committed
Just some food for thought.....
