E. Agencies of Education
1. Apprenticeship
A boy (6-10 years old) was assigned to a master who would teach him the skills of the trade, watch over his morals and train him in religion. In turn, the boy works hard and serves his master. This varied according to the trade. He was bound to fix a term of training, varying from two to ten years according to the difficulties of each craft. He lived as a member of the master’s household.
He cleans his tools, prepares his materials, sits beside him and learns how to work.
• At 18, after giving his proof of his skills to the committee of examiners from the guild, the youth became a journeyman.

F. Organization
2. Journeyman
• The young boy travelled as a paid worker and go to different master craftsmen. He could move about and select the master with whom he wished to work.
• Unmarried journeymen were likely to board with their masters, but they were paid wages for they learned enough to make their service of real value.

F. Organization
3. Master Craftsman

• Simply the educated apprentice. He could now put up a shop of his own if he had enough capital and could now employ apprentices and journeymen.
• Only masters could own business shops. They sold products at prices set by the guild, and were supervised by the guild to see if their products were superior.
• He had to do a special piece of work, “The Master- piece” as proof of his skill.

F. Organization
Observation, imitation and practice
The sequence of activities in training was used in apprenticeship.

Dictation, memorization, catechetical method
These were used in the burgher and chantry schools.

The master could be harsh in his pupil. Priest were usually employed to teach in the schools.
Education is strictly preparation for work.

The Chantry Schools

Craft system had proved quite inadequate to meet the needs of the capitalistic industries serving a wide market.

2. Struggle of Producing Guilds
Town revolutions occurred in numerous places throughout Europe, most revolts representing protest against exploitation by the rich.

Peasants and their families worked in their house and were paid a piece wage for the finished products. This is often called adomestic or putting out system of industry.
