Apprentices are those who have entered into an apprenticeship contract with an employer or artisan who has contracted to teach or use someone to teach the apprentice his occupation; and in return, the apprentice has to work for the employer according to the conditions and term of the contract. (Section 1 Article 8, Cambodian Labour Law). According to ministry's prakas, any companies with more than 60 workers, the following is the required quota proportional to the company’s total workforce: (1) 10%, for enterprises that employ between 60 to 200 workers; (2) 8%, for enterprises that employ between 201 to 500 workers; and (3) an additional 4% for every further 500 workers at enterprises that employ more than 501 workers, provided that a maximum of 110 apprentices may be trained by a company in one year.
