A recent article in the Irish Times reports on the new apprenticeship opportunities which will soon be available for Irish school-leavers who wish to go the "earn and learn" route. Traditionally apprenticeships were restricted to areas such as construction and craft, but these new options will include opportunities in animation, horticulture, systems engineering and cybersecurity. Skill levels will range from level five (certificate) to level 10 (doctorate) and vary in duration from two to four years. Minister for Education, Richard Bruton, has made a commitment to enrol 31,000 people on apprenticeship programmes in the period 2016-2020. Read more by following the link below.
