Potential apprentices from 9 schools around Brisbane are working on one of the biggest redevelopment projects in the city.
The program is being hosted by Lendlease in partnership with Constructions Skills Queensland and Worldskills and involves more than 200 high school students.
The construction industry has become popular among young people with the demand for apprentices in the industry increasing 54 per cent in the past decade.
If you’re interested in a construction trade, a good place to start is by completing the White Card. The 3 main reasons for this are:
- It fulfils a mandatory federal requirement for anyone working on a construction site.
- It teaches workers how to work safely on a construction site – one of the most high risk work sites.
- Already being in possession of a white card makes you a more attractive candidate for employment.
