Abstract: The main purpose of the study was to see the implementation of apprenticeship training in the three government colleges at Arba Minch. To this end, an attempt was made to look in to the criterion for selecting and placement of trainees on apprenticing organiíaiions, arrangements and selection procedures of apprenticing centers. Opinions and views (of trainees, trainers, supervisors and deans) on the adequacy and appropriateness of training period, evaluation and supervision of trainees at the work place, the relation between theory and practice, and eflorts made by colleges to improve the training programs were treated. The study employed descriptive analysis' in regular programs of the three colleges selected from teaching (TT C), health (HSC), technical and vocational education and training (T VET) sectors. The Subjects of the study were 3 deans (v/deans), 3 apprenticeship caordinators/vocational counselors, 84 trainers, 273 trainees and 15 apprenticeship centers. Trainees were selected through stratifíed random sampling technique while trainers were selected through purposive and random sampling techniques. The Information obtained through questionnaires, interviews and document analysis were analyzed using both descriptive and infierential statistics such as percentages and analysis of variance (ANOVA) including chi-square(x2) test and F-test at the 0.05 signtficance level. The finding of the study revealed that availability of supervisors and occupation were widely used criterion to select apprenticing organizations in TTC and HSC while interest of apprenticing organizations was the dominant factor in selecting apprenticeship centers for TVET trainees. Placement ofapprentice to practice centers was done by agreement between colleges and apprenticing organízations. The size of trainees sent to apprenticeship centers was determined by college 's management in TTC, trainers in HSC and vocational counselor in TVET College. The Implementation of apprenticeship based on the legal fiamework was very limited. Apprenticing organizatíons should pay incentives depending on the duration of training and type of occupation trainees engaged. As well, there should be responsible organ that determine the content, structure, duration of training period and the standard of the training. Serious attention should be given in coordinating traditional apprenticeship with modern once so that trainees can gain and adapt selfemployment opportunities in the infizrmal sectors.
