I have some questions for those of you offering "apprenticeships" in
bookbinding. Assume that the "apprentice" has very little prior experience.
1: Do you have a minimum duration, maximum duration, average?
2: Do you charge "apprentices" or pay them based on some sort of sliding
scale. What basis is used for this scale, ie. experience, profitability...?
3: Do you have some sort of curriculum which you try to follow, concluding
with a set of skills and proficiency expectations? How is this curriculum
arrived at: predetermined, discussed and agreed upon with apprentice,
whatever the apprentice wants...?
4: What are your expectations, pre-entry requirements...?
5: Any other thoughts on the subject?
If anyone wants to share their thoughts, experiences, warnings... I'd love
to hear about them.
