In this report, the authors concentrate on apprentices in trade occupations, where pre-apprenticeship programs are most prevalent. Approximately 28 per cent of apprentices and trainees in the trade occupations reported that they had completed a pre-apprenticeship program. This allows the authors to examine a number of questions about the impact of pre-apprenticeship training on the apprenticeship experience. First, they look at whether those who undertook pre-apprenticeship training were more satisfied with their apprenticeship than their peers who had not. Second, they look at whether those who undertook a pre-apprenticeship are more likely to complete their training. Thirdly, they examine whether those who undertook a pre-apprenticeship but who did not complete their apprenticeship are less likely to give work- or training-based factors as their reason for not completing their training. Our motivation is to determine whether the pre-apprenticeship training gives potential apprentices a more realistic idea of what an apprenticeship really is. (Introduction)
