Australia is setting out to drive young people towards “job ready” degrees
If I were a world leader, I’d do something similar, but not with degrees. I’d pour money into apprenticeships in new industries / industries that are going to be increasingly relevant for the future and I’d start paying them straightaway on an apprenticeship wage and I’d link bonuses/increases to something like staying the course / practical exam results / etc.
And the apprenticeships would not just be aimed at the young. They’ll be needed throughout all ages as people lose their jobs.
“Industries” where I believe there are huge opportunities for the future for non-graduate technicians:
health and well-being
local /city agriculture
What would you do?
