    Who has a apprentice or had one ? Worth the hassle?

    As soon will know I had Kieran who is now 24 and fitting LVT amazing. It was hard in the early years but worth it in the end.

    We have 2 now. Art who is just over 2 years in and 19 and Josh who’s a year in and 17. Always a pain pushing them NA telling the, again and again. But I defo feel it’s the best way.

    “ get the bolster art , no mate that’s a wood chisel “ :mad:

    Always had apprentices, trained loads. 3 of the guys are now doing really well n there own. Some never made the grade, and I didn`t stay in touch with them.
    I know most people piss and moan about the kids these days etc, but for the most part I have found them to be hard working.

    I really gotta get another apprentice next year. Had a few that done well and a couple that I’m pretty sure won’t be in flooring anymore

    Will never have another apprentice, too much effort, for potentially no payback
