Construction Training Fund information session

Exciting new training opportunities for our RTO in 2018!

Long term stakeholder of Skill Hire, Construction Training Fund (CTF) have introduced a new training opportunity for 200 year 11 students in Western Australia, that are interested in a future construction career. CTF are working with six Registered Training organisations (RTO’S) throughout Perth to deliver a scholarship program. Skill Hire RTO have been lucky to be one of the six RTO’s chosen to endorse the scholarship program for year 11 students.

Skill Hire will deliver the qualification 52824WA Certificate II in Building and construction (Pathway-Trades), in two trade areas carpentry & joinery and bricklaying/blocklaying which students can complete as part of their WACE throughout years 11 and 12. The other RTO’s will deliver alternative pathways such as business pathway’s and plumbing.

The scholarship is a new training pathway for students, that comes at no cost to the successful scholar or the school. Interested students had to apply through their Vet Coordinators, expressing their interest in the particular trade area.

Applicants have then being shortlisted by the RTO in which they were referred to, interviews conducted and if successful have recently attended information sessions.

Skill Hire will deliver the program to scholars in three locations commencing Friday 9 February at:

  • Forrestfield
  • Balcatta
  • Eaton

The scholarship program is designed to train an elite group of like minded students with a real interest in their chosen pathway, which will then lead into a future career pathway, providing employers with trainees and apprentices that will be first choice following successful completion of a scholarship program. Scholars will be delivered a program that over two years, not only consists of accredited training but will also give students access to alternative practical projects, work experience, regular mentoring, career advice and meetings with employers, along with being provided with all safety clothing and a branded uniform.
This program provides scholars with the skills and experience required to forge a future career in the industry whilst obtaining the support of industry throughout their training program.

We are excited and proud to have been chosen as one of the first RTO’s to deliver such an elite program.
