  • Students from Kalamunda participated in the Try-A-Trade at Skill Hire. They were excited to have the opportunity to experience a work place where they were supported to gain knowledge as well as work in a collegiate atmosphere. It was a great learning experience.

  • All students enjoyed their time at Skill Hire very much. Students were excited to see the end result, but were just as excited to demolish it!

    (These students recently took part in a three day Try-A-Trade course at Skill Hire, funded by the Construction Training Fund)

  • Working with Skill Hire was an absolute joy! Our students enjoyed an unsurpassed opportunity to learn and develop skills that supported their career aspirations. Trainer, Wayne Sutherland managed a full team of 15 students with ease and aplomb! The opportunity to engage with on-site works meant that our students have now had a real experience of these trades and feel more confident in their ability to succeed. A few students are keen to continue their trade studies with Skillhire and we wish them all the very best. Thankyou so much for the opportunity to take part in Try-A-Trade and SOP
