Apprenticeship Reform

Apprenticeship facilitation.

The opportunities for recent graduates of high school to enter apprenticeship programs in a number of trades such as plumbing, electrician etc are severely limited by the requirement that several journeymen must be available to train each apprentice. The college of trades must be reformed to facilitate easier access for young high school graduates .Our neighbour is a recent graduate but finds that no employer wants an apprentice because he lacks the money and the program requires 3 journeymen for one apprentice.
