Apprenticeships in the Greek education system include the training of a new generation of professionals with parallel vocational training in the workplace and theoretical training in the school unit. Most of their training is done while working for an employer who helps trainees learn their profession, while successful completion of the program leads to the acquisition of qualifications. School-based education aims to enhance knowledge through business-based training and to ensure the acquisition of competences and skills. The aim is also to ensure that the school section of the program develops students' general competences and lays the foundations for lifelong learning. Educational systems should offer to apprenticeship's teachers the opportunities for a career development in order to maintain a high level of teaching and maintain a high-quality educational potential. Although the role of Greek teachers in apprenticeship is clearly defined, there is a lack of training opportunities in the methods and its contents, which drives to an unsuccessful implementation of an apprenticeship.
