An apprenticeship agreement is a fixed-term contract between the employer and the student, in which the student is trained at the workplace. The apprenticeship agreement is accompanied by a personal study programme, which is drawn up on the basis of the qualification criteria approved by the Finnish National Agency for Education. The training also includes knowledge-based studies, which are carried out either in a vocational institution or an adult education centre. During the working periods of the apprenticeship training, the student is paid a salary in accordance with the collective agreement. An apprenticeship leading to a qualification lasts from one to three years. Previous training and work experience reduce the training time. (source: kuljetusala.com)
