In this letter, we study employer learning about worker ability during apprenticeship. We exploit an exogenous shock that increased the number of apprenticeship contracts in Italy, to analyse what type of workers were hired and which ones were trained more during the contract. We find that firms select workers according to their ability not upon recruiting them, but during the apprenticeships and the higher the revealed ability of the workers, the more training they receive.
