Apprenticeships are organized and managed in cooperation between educational institutions and employers. They vary in terms of governance, some being more employer-lead and others led by educational institutions, but they are always paid positions associated with a curriculum. Apprenticeships are designed as a means for students to put theory into practice and master knowledge in a way that empowers them with professional autonomy. Apprenticeship programs are typically not course designations, but rather a sequence of courses organized into a degree or certificate plan.
