Management positions in the trades are on the rise. The Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that there were 93,000 Construction Managers in Australia in 2016, an increase of 11,400 Managers since 2011. Of these Managers, 23.6% had a Bachelor degree while 17.4% had completed a Diploma or Advanced Diploma on top of their apprenticeship. So what does this mean for Apprentices?
Many people regard an apprenticeship or traineeship as a way to upskill, re-enter the workforce, start a new career path or enter a specific industry. However, an apprenticeship can lead to so much more than that, including business ownership or a management position.
WHAT ARE TRADE APPRENTICESHIPS?
Apprenticeships and traineeships combine training with working in a real job, for a real wage. They are formal training arrangements between an employer and an employee that can lead to a nationally recognised qualification. While an apprenticeship teaches you the skills and knowledge required of your chosen trade, it can equip you with so much more than that and lay the foundation for your success in later life.
HOW CAN AN APPRENTICESHIP LEAD TO A MANAGEMENT POSITION?
Entrepreneurs looking to make the leap into owning their own trade business should consider undertaking an apprenticeship first. Apprenticeships provide the opportunity to further your knowledge in a field you are passionate about and equip you with the skills and knowledge required for a management position in that area.
