Your first step towards an apprenticeship or traineeship is a pre-apprenticeship program that will help you get entry-level training to prepare you for work in the construction industry.
If you are at school, you can choose a flexible industry pathway that will provide you with construction experience and pre-apprenticeship training. Adult learners can get pre-apprenticeship training by undertaking a Certificate II or Foundation Skills Short Course.
Find a pre-apprenticeship program through your school or a training organisation.
With over 200 roles including trade and university pathways — there’s a career in construction for you!
