Scandinavia
as H. C. ANDERSEN, (2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues , novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales . Andersen's popularity is not limited to children; his stories, called eventyr in Danish , express themes that transcend age and nationality. Andersen's fairy tales, of which no less than 3381 works have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well

Apprentice
An APPRENTICESHIP is a system of training a new generation of practitioners of a trade or profession with on-the-job training and often some accompanying study (classroom work and reading). Apprenticeship
Apprenticeship
also enables practitioners to gain a license to practice in a regulated profession. Most of their training is done while working for an employer who helps the apprentices learn their trade or profession, in exchange for their continued labor for an agreed period after they have achieved measurable competencies. Apprenticeships typically last 3 to 7 years. People who successfully complete an apprenticeship reach the "journeyman " or professional certification level of competence. Although the formal boundaries and terminology of the apprentice/journeyman/master system often do not extend outside of guilds and trade unions , the concept of on-the-job training leading to competence over a period of years is found in any field of skilled labor
