Wool Industry short of students. Misleading story.
Wool Industry short of students story, on ABC Rural, 10th June 2014.
This story is very misleading to prospective students. Wool Classing teacher Matthew Kaluder says. "Worried about skills shortage" and " there is plenty of work out there".Student Keagan Size says, he can get regular contract work, "during his holidays".
Most people want, and need a regular income.
On A.W.E.X.s own figures,the average registered Wool Classer classes 94 bales per year, barely 1 weeks work.
Where is the shortage?
