The NHO is asking hundreds of Oslo pupils missing apprenticeship this fall to get out of the capital and head north.
Troms and Svalbard are cited as attractive areas in need of apprentices.
– Young must see opportunities in a region with the lowest unemployment rate in 2016. There’s always a need for professionals, says regional director of NHO Troms and Svalbard, Christian Chramer, to the newspaper Dagsavisen.
A total of 400 apprentices are missing work in the autumn, after a record number have applied for apprenticeships in the capital.
According to Chramer, there is demand for professionals in professions like construction, seafood industry, tourism industry and the shipbuilding industry in Troms and electricians, building trades and refinish on Svalbard.
The Education Agency in Oslo points out to the newspaper that more people will get an apprenticeship when autumn comes.
