Mark is doing an apprenticeship as an engineer.
Is the expression doing an apprenticeship possible, or do I have to use serving an apprenticeship?
Approved answer (verified by CalifJim)
"He's doing an apprenticeship" is fine in UK English
"He's serving an apprenticeship" is OK. It is proper, but is maybe now a little old-fashioned
In common speech, you could say "He's on an apprenticeship"
