Summary

  • Workplace training is predominantly voluntary, with no general statutory obligation on employers to provide or finance training for their employees (except in the case of apprentices). (See General)
  • Apprenticeships involve a combination of work-based practical training and theoretical training. (See Apprenticeships)
  • Specific legislation governs student "internships", which are defined as supervised work placements, aimed at preparing the student for employment and forming part of the student's course of study. (See Internships)
