What is the Apprenticeship Program?

We've created the apprenticeship program to help businesses in the industry, such as yours, deal with some of the most common problem in this post-pandemic reality: labour shortage (ex. staff recruitment/retention/turnover).
By offering your company the opportunity to become a sponsor and cover most of the academic expenses for one or more of our apprentices, you will gain valuable workforce from our students, for the duration of their academic years or even long after they've graduated.
Apprentices learn while working a part-time job during the semesters (applicable only for local partners) and having a full-time job throughout the rest of the year. Also, this does not only apply to our students, but it can also apply to your own, current or future, employees.
Let's invest together in the professionals of tommorrow - in transforming lives and growing young talent, offering students an affordable work & study experience and by bridging the gap between what schools teach and what experience brings.
