Traditional apprenticeship describes the system of skills transmission from a father or a mother to one of their children, including close family members. Traditional apprenticeship usually includes a “moral upbringing” of the apprentice. Informal apprenticeship is more open than traditional apprenticeship and apprentices come from outside the family or kin group. Notwithstanding, a master craftsperson training informal apprentices, might also train their own child as traditional apprentice.
