There’s a lot to like about bricklaying, say Apprentices at Skills Tech

I visited Queensland’s new ‘state-of-the-art’ SkillsTech Trade Training Centre recently at Arcadia Ridge in Brisbane with Tony Bishop, ABBTF’s Queensland State Manager.

Tony took the opportunity to show the Become a Bricklayer DVD to a group of Stage 2 apprentices who were in for their bricklayer training. The apprentices said the DVD was spot on and they could see themselves being part of the industry and feeling pretty good about becoming a bricklayer.


There’s a world of skill in Tassie’s bricklaying Barratts

Had a call from Debbie Barratt in Hobart this week. She’s justifiably proud of her sons’ Luke and Matt and the apprentices working for their family bricklaying company, who were competing in the Tasmanian Regional World Skills.

Bricklaying Competition. The Barratt boys and apprentices made up seven out of the eight competitors!
