My guess would be, what you have to learn first as an apprentice. First you have to learn everything about metals and that is not just silver or gold. There are many other metals involved in the jewellery industry like copper, brass, zink, palladium etc. After the gold has been mined, it goes to the refinery factory to get refined separated from other minerals metals. The combination of the different metals in gold has a name, Alloy. You have to learn about all these metals to understand why 9ct is harder then 18ct, but has a lower melting point.
When you learn everything about the metals, it would be easier to start practicing. Metals and how to work with them, is one of the first goldsmith secrets. The rest is just a matter of time. Firstly, you can start studying at a jewellery school and in approximately 3 years you will have a diploma and a big disappointment because nobody wants you. I have to tell you this story. A few years ago when all the students passed their exams and started looking for a job, I had a few guys coming to my shop and tried their luck.
My name is well known around here and anyone can tell you that I am the best. Maybe it is not a good thing to talk about myself, but I want you to understand when I say- tried their luck. Secondly, they also knew that I will give them a chance to prove themselves and to everyone that I can.
So I had one very talented guy from the school. He wasn't very young, 27 years of age and had experience in working at a jewellery shop for a year.
He then did a one year jewellery designer course and finely completed jewellery school in 3 years. I could tell he had enormous potential and a great future. All he needed was experience. But, after two months the school called him and offered him a position as a teacher. This was the same school where he graduated from.
So he left for more money which is understandable. The point is, a good and experienced master goldsmith will never give up his job as a goldsmith because on the bench he can make much more money than any school can offer him as a teacher.
The second way to become a goldsmith is to try a jewellery shop with a workshop. A manufacturing jeweller, not a chain store which only sells jewellery. I already spoke about that on the page: Free Lesson Any jeweller can take you as an apprentice and apply for your apprenticeship. After 3 years you will still have to qualify to get your diploma. The same as any jewellery school and the only difference is, you will have practical experience working as a goldsmith.

Third and the last. You can learn a goldsmiths trade at home. Yes you can.
It could be much harder and would be called a hobby, but still you will be a goldsmith with or without a diploma. You will be a goldsmith because of your craftsmanship and expertise and nobody can take that away from you. Later your hobby can grow into a business and you can register a company and nobody will ask you if you have a goldsmith diploma.
Go to a store that sells material and buy synthetic leather.
