Hello everyone,

From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.

Apply online for a LaunchCode apprenticeship and we will help you grow your skills and passion for tech, while matching you with mentors and providing feedback on your progress. LaunchCode matches you with one of our 500 employer partners for a paid apprenticeship, typically twelve weeks long. Hone your skills on the job, learning from experienced developers. Nine out of ten apprentices are converted to full-time hires.

What does "for a paid apprenticeship" imply in the context above?

1. The employer will teach you while you work for them (employer) and will pay you for your work.
2. You will work for the employer, the employer will teach you and you will pay them (employer) for their teaching you.
3. You will work for the employer, the employer will teach you. While you're learning you won't pay anything and you don't receive any money for your work.

Thank you.

    The employer pays you while you are learning. This is common in the UK, where it is obligatory to stay in some sort of education up to the age of 18. Of course, some stay at school or got to college and do their A-levels. Others, at age 16, choose from the many paid apprenticeships on offer. If you're interested you can have a look at the UK government's site here.
