Apprenticeship is a system of learning a craft or trade from one who is engaged in it and of paying for instruction for a given number of years of work. The practice was known in ancient Babylon, Egypt, Greece and Rome, as well as modern Europe and to some extent the United States of America. It was typical in the medieval Europe for a master craftsman to agree to instruct a young man, to give him shelter, food and clothing to work for the master for a given time. The apprentice after this becomes a journey person who will work for the master for wages, or he/she sets up as master him/herself.
