Program shares Bricklaying with 190 Youth in recent weeks

At ABBTF we have found through experience that the most effective promotion of the bricklaying trade apprenticeship is to give a young person a trowel to try-out bricklaying for themselves. As a result, over recent weeks across the country there have been a large number of young people getting a taste of bricklaying.

For example, at Coffs Harbour TAFE in NSW, this week 27 secondary students are participating in a Step Out Program for one week. A Work Ready Program is starting at Granville TAFE on Monday with 15 school students and job seekers enrolled. The plan is to run a program each week in NSW to fill ongoing apprenticeship vacancies.

The Facts on the Bricklayer Shortage and Pay Rates

I need to correct a report on bricklayer earnings that was recently published in the Sydney Daily Telegraph and then syndicated across other press outlets in other States.

ABBTF can confirm that bricklayers do not earn $6,000 over four days, as was reported, for the reason that a bricklayer cannot physically lay 1,500 a day!
