Is anyone else with teenagers/young adults having problems finding apprenticeships in Adelaide?
My son will finish TAFE, Cert 2 in ElectroTechnology (Career start) in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration and there are just no adverts out there for apprenticeships, in this field.
He has been on work experience but firms do not seem interested in taking on apprentices.
He was at vocational college in the UK doing electrical and mechanical courses, and has done Cert 2 in Electronics and Fabrication & Welding here in Adelaide as well, so he is a good all rounder. He is getting quite dispirited about it all.
We are permanent residents but not here for 2 years yet, so we are still keeping him afloat, but he would rather be learning his trade, than sitting at home.
If anyone hears of anything in this field, please feel free to contact me.
