An apprenticeship is the recognised way people are trained in a craft trade or profession. Apprentices are employees. An apprenticeship provides on-the-job training with an employer. It usually alternates between off-the-job training in an education centre and on-the-job training at your employer's workplace. An apprenticeship generally lasts for 2 to 4 years, during which time the apprentice will spend different periods in off-the-job training.

Trainees are full time students and not employed with the work placement company. Traineeships give participants the opportunity to develop cutting edge skills and knowledge on-the-job, making them more skilled, more employable and enhancing their career options. Trainees can secure employment with the work placement company after completion of the course and achievement of the award. Traineeships are linked with various employers throughout Cavan and Monaghan e.g. Combilift, ENTEKRA, Esker Lodge Nursing home, Monaghan Mushrooms, Lakeland Dairies and many others.
