Expect To See A Surge In Apprenticeships

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine's youngest son began training in a tech last week as a plumber. He had a choice of plumbing courses... A few years from now and there will be more plumbers than we have soldiers in the army.

This is actually true anedotally at least, looking through job centre plus and gumtree , (I'm still unemployed :( ) there were rather a large number of apprentice jobs...

Apprentice office worker :blink:

Apprentice call centre worker :blink:

Pay for 37.5hours was around £95 a week...

For some reason the myth persists that plumbers are in short supply and that all plumbers are pulling in a fortune. This was true 10 years ago, but like with IT we now have a glut of supply.

Every man and his dog went to night school to do plumbing over the last 3-4 of years, I know a 20 years in the business skilled plumber who recently lost his job, can't find work for love nor money.

Are you saying that we have an overflow of plummers?

Apprentice shelf stackers

Apprentice call centre workers

Apprentice anything they can justify an apprenticeship in to keep wage costs down

on a serious note. we should see lots and lots of apprentiships in the next 5-10 years as due to high import costs we go back to what we used to do best. engineering and innovation, not some bankers spiv industry of twisted maths.

also the cost of employment and the need for real skills will match. get a £120 apprentiship and pay no council tax and receive housing benefit learning something productive would be a better way of spending the next 5-10 on the dole.
