I do want to take on apprentices in the future but as i am just starting to expand, this moment in time isn't right for me. But having looked into it, i feel sorry for teenagers trying to get qualified as there is only a small amount of funding available to them and it still does not make it affordable for the likes of me to take someone on, where i will loose time in training them to start with.
if anyone does need any advice with finding painting work, please do get in contact, i will help the best i can, even if it is only advice or a phone number you can try.
It is all about who you know in Adelaide with trade jobs.
good luck to those starting out.
