BUILD Up Tassie is in full swing this year. The crew for 2021 is entering its final few days in the construction work orientation program.
It’s worked through various tasks over the past nine weeks, including finance, general health and well-being topics, construction related maths, reading and understanding building plans, and small scale construction projects such as dog kennels and garden beds to build skills and confidence using power tools.
In addition to the practical skills training the team has completed construction industry white card training and first aid training to better prepare for employment opportunities.
It is now looking toward phase two, which is The St Joseph Affordable Homes Work Placement Program. The Work Placement Program will allow individuals to experience four different trade environments over eight weeks to assist with identifying the areas they are most suited to before they look to committing to an apprenticeship.
Please contact Adrian on 0408 173 927 if you or someone you know might like to learn more about our next program. Expressions of interest will open this month.
