- Interested in becoming an apprentice plumber, who would I contact about this?
"Apprenticeship is overseen by a national Apprenticeship Council. The further education and training authority SOLAS is the lead agency responsible for apprenticeship on behalf of Government, working in close partnership with the Higher Education Authority, Quality and Qualifications Ireland, industry and education and training providers across further and higher education. SOLAS' responsibility includes maintenance of a national register of employers approved to take on apprentices and a national register of apprentices.
The ETB's (Education and Training Boards) administer the apprenticeships on a local basis. For more information on apprenticships you should contact the apprenticeship section in your local ETB. For contact details of your local ETB view the website; www.etbi.ie"
