They also help in improving the quality of service industry aiding associated trades. For e.g. construction firms always require electrical, air-conditioning, plumbing, masonry workers. Apart from giving students the opportunity to earn while they learn, they also provide them with hands on experiences which are rarely received in a classroom atmosphere.

An apprenticeship makes a student more competitive in the job market. It also gives a candidate a fair idea of whether the particular field of chosen study is feasible for him in the long run based on getting a practical experience. It also gives a sense of responsibility, professionalism; work ethics to the students while they are still in colleges. This can actually help in eliminating difficulties most graduate trainees face during a sudden shift from a campus to a corporate culture.
