The apprenticeship system in Ireland is managed on a national basis by SOLAS. Resources are allocated for the provision of training as required based on the number of apprentices registered in particular trades at any particular time. SOLAS schedule registered apprentices on the off the job phases in Training Centres, Institutes of Technology and other providers in accordance with the overall scheme.
