By 2030, Norway might be short of 100 000 skilled workers.
This is important information for anyone about to make education choices.
Finance Minister Siv Jensen advises that more should choose a vocational education.
- Mind the pipes
Olav and Joachim are well underway with their first year as apprentice joiners.
- We’ve got it
- Check that
According to the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise,
in ten years Norway will have a shortage of 100,000 skilled workers.
That means more need to choose vocational studies.
Like Olav and Joachim.
- It’s a good environment, you learn lots
And you get to do things you’re not allowed to do at school.
And that’s always good.
I chose to be a joiner because of my father.
I have gone to work with him since I was small.
Are you sure you made the right choice?
There’s going to be enough work in the future, I reckon.
- Yes, plenty
We will implement new measures in this area.
There is a public procurement requirement for apprentices.
We must raise the reputation and importance of this.
More will get an apprenticeship when they choose to take a vocational education.
Once you have qualified,
lots of options are open.
If you don’t want to be a joiner,
You can be a foreman or you can work with concrete.
There are many options if you choose a vocational education.
A bit more... that’s it.
