With the 2015 WA Regional WorldSkills competitions not far away, training providers, employers and apprentices are coming together to up-skill for this major event.
One of the most recent pre-competition “try outs” occurred at South West Institute of Technology (Bunbury) last week. Keenly supported by Dale Alcock South West, five of their apprentices matched up to undertake the project of which all completed to a fair degree of competency.
Mark Baker, senior bricklaying lecturer at SWIT said “Over the past two days I have witnessed exceptional skills and determination from the competitors in Bricklaying and Wall and Floor tiling, they have done themselves proud. “It is a privilege to be involved with WorldSkills and the passionate team that make it happen every year, I am looking forward to the journey with the team towards competition”.
Other training providers getting involved in running WorldSkills Bricklaying pre-competition trials include Polytechnic West Balga, Challenger TAFE Rockingham and Skill Hire in Kewdale.
