With matric exams just a month away, a Johannesburg businessman says learners need to realise that they have several options available once they finish school.
Paul Kent is managing director of independent credit card swipe machine distributor SureSwipe.
He says matrics seem hell-bent on getting into university despite the fact that trade skills are in higher demand.
Kent maintains that more emphasis needs to be put on apprenticeships.
