Apprenticeship is also post-secondary education but the difference is, much of your education takes place on the job. Apprentices, on average, spend about 10 months of the year in paid work, and about two months of the year getting their apprenticeship training in a school such as SAIT. It is probably the least costly way of getting a post-secondary education! There are many, many trades available under the apprenticeship program such as Carpentry, Automotive Mechanic, Hair Stylist and Cook. Check out all the information at: www.tradesecrets.gov.ab.ca.
