and more on show for you!
There are many great advantages for you when you take on an apprenticeship or traineeship in a trade.
Firstly, you EARN WHILE YOU LEARN!
You are paid from the first day that you start on the job. This is a major benefit when you are starting out your life as an adult.
Locally there is a chronic shortage of skills in many industries, this is especially true in construction. For example, securing employment as an apprentice plumber or electrician ensures you will be in a high demand career for the foreseeable future.
Who becomes an apprentice?
Generally they are creative people with a drive to make something of themselves in a useful and fruitful career. Apprentices are attached to a master of the craft and are privy to the "trade secrets" while on the job. After a few short years they emerge fully qualified and able to demand tradesperson's wages.
Pathways to a career.
