How old are "traditional" trade apprentices when you take them on?
Member of family (she who is *never* wrong, supported by clutch of offspring) was adamant that no-one can leave school before 18 YO.
So I said "they can if they take an apprenticeship", to which the response was "only one of those waste of time classroom type apprenticeships" (no argument from me about the "waste of time" part here!)
and I said "No a traditional trade apprenticeship counts" - "Oh no it doesn't" .....
so what is the rule here please?
