What they are
Apprenticeships are programs where anyone of a certain age can observe and work with someone of a profession they are interested in. The differences between this and job shadowing are that this is much more hands on, usually requires at least 2,000 hours, and can pay you a good amount of money. The jobs that have this option are usually much more difficult than others and require much training to get into, but it is a great option if you are set on a more hands on, complex job.
