Many young Australian’s will know by now if they were accepted into the University course of their choice based on their ATAR score.
Congratulations to the successful applicants, however, there is a silver lining to the perceived cloud covering the unsuccessful young people.
We have seen over many years that another door opens to create pathways to great careers for these people. An example is in construction and often the journey starts with an apprenticeship in bricklaying.
Bricklaying is a great trade with immense job satisfaction from working with your hands, seeing the results of your work and working outdoors.
Many young people with the aptitude and skill believe that a degree is a must. This is not the case and many talented people have gone on from bricklaying to running their own successful business or have become builders, construction managers or project managers with a valuable trade behind them.
Other comparisons with University that favour an Apprenticeship are:
- No HECS fees
- Paid to learn on the job
- Trade Support Loan of up to $20,000 available
- Choice of career pathways
- Variety of work designs and locations
- Current high demand and work opportunities
- Suits entrepreneurial aspirations.
