Newcastle Herald letters to the editor Saturday, January 27, 2018

EVERY time I read a story like Ian Kirkwood’s (‘We can’t find apprentices’, Newcastle Herald, 25/1) I am struck that nobody talks of the reasons why candidates for apprenticeships are hard to find compared to those wanting to go to university. It has not been my experience that kids do not want to enrol, but rather that financial barriers are so set against them.
