Medieval Guilds:

Medieval Guilds played an important role in medieval towns as guilds attempted to guarantee standards amongst crafts in Medieval England

Some members of a guild were chosen to check that the other members of the guild were working up to standard. Those guild members that were found to be cheating the public would be fined or had to redo the work on their own time and would not be payed for doing so

The worst punishment that could happen was that you could be fired from being a guild which meant that you could no longer trade in your city.

Apprentices to Guilds:

Apprentices to a guild could be as young as twelve years old

They were taught to trade by another guild member

An apprentice could live with his master for anything up to fourteen years old

Apprentices were not allowed to get married during their apprenticeship

Once an apprenticeship was over, the young person now became a journeyman. He would be paid a wage and

once he had saved enough money, he could start up a business of his own

What types of jobs did women have?

Women worked in a great variety of jobs, only the upper classes didn't work, and most women also were expected to take care of children and the household.
