The article offers information on apprenticeship. It combines paid work with training, which can be on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of the two. There are no entry qualifications necessary for apprenticeships, so anyone of working age can get involved. One will be paid an apprentice wage for the time one spend on the job with an employer. For first-year apprentices doing a four-year apprenticeship, the weekly minimum wage is $246.24 for a hairdresser.
