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 Acacia 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.

Check it out here if you haven’t seen it.

This is a  great endorsement for ABBTF as we aim to not only present the advantages of a bricklaying apprenticeship but also try to balance this with the realities of work life –  showing that dedication, consistency and a strong work ethic pay off big time!

Tony also talked to students about the ABBTF’s online $3,000 Store Card Competition, running till January for young people looking at, or in trade apprenticeships.  He hadn’t finished explaining it before a number of apprentices jumped online to enter the competition through ABBTF’s Facebook page or through this website.

If you haven’t entered…do it now!*
*(PLEASE NOTE:  This competition has now closed)

As Manager at ABBTF it is so gratifying to hear them say: “There’s a lot to like about bricklaying”.  I wonder if others have had the same sort of feedback from bricklaying apprentices.

Let me know.

Geoff Noble,
Head Office, ABBTF
