Abstract:Provides information on the background, motivation, and learning experience of apprentices in Accra and explores the differences between trades with a relatively long history of practice within the traditional society (goldsmithing, carpentry, and, to a lesser extent, tailoring) and those which are largely limited to the more developed, urban sector of the population (printing, radio repairing). After an introductory note comprising figures on apprenticeship follow the sections: Types of apprenticeships - The trades studied - Apprentices' background - Choice of a trade and master - Fees - Conditions - Conclusion. Ref., tables, French summary.
