Apprenticeship development

How are apprenticeships developed?

Apprenticeships are developed by employers, employees and other stakeholders with expert knowledge. They engage in a process to create an apprenticeship based upon the reality of the workplace. The economic importance and demand for the apprenticeship are also taken into consideration before starting the process.
