Numbers are booming for those wanting to learn a trade.  

There's been a 49 percent jump in apprenticeships since August of 2019. 

Concave Construction Co-chair Graham Burke told Mike Hosking it's a direct result of the Government's Apprentice Boost policy. 

“$1000 a month for the first year, and $500 a month for the second year. So, it’s had amazing results.”
