Spark needed for more tradies

The number of West Australian’s learning a trade has declined by nine per cent, sparking a call for high school students to turn to learn and work as an alternative.

“I don’t think there’s a lack of interest, I think there’s a lack of understanding. I think there’s still a cultural bias towards university pathways,” Nathan Bentley from the Apprenticeship Support Australia told 6PR Breakfast.

Our listeners joined the discussion and told us about their children or grandchildren who are learning a trade.
