A pre-apprenticeship course is a Post Leaving Cert course aimed at students who wish to go on to pursue an apprenticeship. They are a good option as they prepare future apprentices by equipping them with skills and work experience providing a foundation to build an apprenticeship on. Pre-apprenticeship courses give candidates a year to sample the work before undertaking an apprenticeship.
When the time comes to apply for an apprenticeship the applicant is in a much stronger position to undertake the apprenticeship and is an attractive applicant for a prospective employer. Many construction sector pre-apprenticeships offer Safe Pass training as an optional component of the course.
