Try A Trade

Try A Trade

Get your school to get hands on and try a trade!

Career development is something that becomes important well before students finish school, that’s why we believe in helping VET coordinators get their students a hands on opportunity to try trades and see what they enjoy!

As part of this offering, our team offers a number options that allow your students experience a day learning from an experienced trainer, allowing them to see what life on a work site is actually like. Try A Trade can be delivered onsite at your school or at our purpose built facilities.

 Students get exposure to fun, hands on and practical activities that are designed to excite their minds and help them consider a career in construction!

 If you’re a VET coordinator or teacher and would like to learn more, get in touch with our training division today!

Skill Hire really helped me to see that I can accomplish something if I set my mind to it and I completed my course 2 months prior to the completion date. Cheers guys!


Skill Hire are helpful and professional. Nicola was attentive to all my needs. Their timesheets systems were a breeze and always update us with messages. Thanks Skill Hire


I just wanted to thank Skill Hire's EST Trainers. Nathan is the absolute best trainer I’ve ever had privilege to meet by a WIDE margin and I appreciate everything done for all of us. I’m ecstatic about the internship opportunity.


Not only did Skill Hire respond quickly to our urgent need, your team took the time to understand our organization and our needs. The people sent to help out were outstanding and their ability to rapidly adapt to our workplace eased our burden during what was a very challenging few months.


My son has thoroughly enjoyed the Construction Pathways course. He spent the last 18 months being home schooled and not socializing with anyone so to see him eager to get up and leave the house every day still blows my mind. Simon, thank you for your understanding and taking extra care with my son.


I wanted to say a big thank you to Skill Hire and the team, especially Wayne for such an amazing experience for our students. All of our students were thoroughly engaged with the course and learned many valuable skills.
