Greetings! 
This week's survey


(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last week's survey 
How many companies would be willing to place a Schools Based Apprentice in 2014?
  • We regularly have kids working here either on work experience or during school holidays. It's a bit of an effort for us to take time and train them up but it's helping the community and giving the kids a leg up. Looking for a new apprentice now as my current one has just come out of his time. The kid we had lined up to take on as an apprentice told us yesterday that his parents want him to go to Uni even though he's gagging to be a signie. We got him through the school based system. (Lee Attewell, Graffic Jam)
  • Not so sure about Schools Based Apprentices as this does not guarantee that you have an employee at the end of the period. Effort & money can be put in for somebody then to change their mind. The best system I found was school based work experience for one day a week at the end of their year. It is a minefield working with bureaucracies if you want to dispense with an apprentice. (Barry Scott, Scott Signs)
  • Yes we would take 2 school based apprentices. (Wes, Form A Signs Pty Ltd)
  • Yes, absolutely. We have contacted a couple a schools a few times but they do not get back to us. 
  • Years ago their use to be a vocational course at school where one day a week a student interested in a particular field could come and learn what it was all about. I took on a few of these and found one that is still with me. I have no formal qualification but have been running and operating a successful business for 19 years. My trainee didn't end up with a certificate but is far more experienced than a lot of others who have a certificate. I do not pay him under an award as he is far more valuable to me than the paltry amount under the award. It is time the government stopped trying to control this industry as it is not a one size fits all. I would take on more trainees, however, under the regulations I am not allowed to.

  • I don't know the answer to this question but I do think the school based apprentice program (without knowing a lot about it) sounds like a great idea especially for those kids that don't want to go on to years 11 & 12. I'm guessing it would give them that light at the end of the tunnel feeling.A little off topic but I noticed how many replies in the last survey complained about not putting apprentices on because of the lack of Government funding. When I was apprenticed it was quite clear my employer was doing it at his own cost and he often said it was his way to assure that good tradesman keep coming into the signage industry - it was his way of supporting and putting back into the industry so having said that it sounds to me like some employers have the same handout mentality as the Gen Y apprentices they complain about. As for the lack of skills - do something about it by training them up - if you can keep hold of them that is - and that's a whole other subject!!!

Bad Day
Think you are having a bad day? Fire authorities in California found a corpse in a burned-out section of forest while assessing the damage done by a forest fire. The deceased male was dressed in a full wet-suit, complete with scuba tanks on his back, flippers, and face mask.
A post-mortem test revealed that the man died not from burns, but from massive internal injuries. Dental records provided a positive identification. Investigators then set about to determine how a fully clothed diver ended up in the middle of a forest fire.
It was revealed that on the day of the fire, the man went diving off the coast, some 20 miles from the forest. The fire fighters, seeking to control the fire as quickly as possible, had called in a fleet of helicopters with very large dip buckets. Water was dipped from the ocean and emptied at the site of the forest fire.
You guessed it. One minute our diver was making like Flipper in the Pacific, the next, he was doing the breast stroke in a fire dip bucket 300 feet in the air.
Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed.
