Work Ready Programs are Underway in Qld

With the end of the 2015 school year here the ABBTF Qld team is busy running Work Ready Programs (WRP) for a Bricklaying Apprenticeship, in Brisbane North and Southside with one planned in early 2016 on the Gold Coast. Call us about other areas 1300 66 44 96.

The Bricklaying WRP’s are designed to give candidates practical hands-on experience and more informative insight into the bricklaying industry than they could get any other way, prior to them going onsite for a trial or an apprenticeship start.

The WRP is an ABBTF-funded program in response to the increasing need for good quality candidates to take up the growing number of Bricklaying apprenticeships on offer in our State.

The Work Ready Programs are a great way for an applicant to gain valuable insight into what is required to become a bricklayer. They are free; they run for approximately five days only and are available to young men and women.

After doing the WRP, candidates are then matched with an employer with ABBTF assistance, using information about training location needs, suitability to large or small teams, work travel needs and so on.

More and more employers are seeking out candidates from the ABBTF WRP’s because of the value they provide in identifying the right person and the right match, first time.

The beauty of doing these types of programs is that it allows us to conduct them in the regions where the demand currently is: this serves the needs of the industry best and encourages local candidates to take up the jobs and apprenticeships given they’re within a reasonable distance of their home.

If you are interested in doing a Work Ready Program, explore this website to learn about all the trade has to offer and call us at the numbers below or Email us using this form.

If you are an employer seeking an apprentice, call the ABBTF Qld office on 1300 66 44 96 or (07) 3205 5559. There are substantial financial incentives of $7000+ available to employers who take on a male apprentice and even more for a female apprentice.

        Hi there, my son has just finished a week’s work experience in plumbing but is quite interested in bricklaying and keeps asking about it. He is turning 16 in November and is in Year 10. We are based in Cooroy on the Sunshine Coast and were wondering if you ran the program up this way, thanks, Joe
