The Pt Augusta team completed their CITB sponsored course on Friday. As a thank you to the Pt Augusta Youth Centre team, for providing us with the facilities, the students built an outdoor BBQ area. More photos can be seen on our facebook page facebook.com/FCTAbuildingcareers. We’d like to thank the students for their hard work and focus over the last 10 weeks.
The team in Pt Augusta has been busy developing their hand skills, with a focus on practical projects. Most of the team are from the Pt Augusta, Quorn and Whyalla region, where these types of courses are not normally available. This course was fully funded by the CITB as a way of getting more people into the industry. While the building industry is experiencing a short term slow down, the longer term trend shows a severe shortage of skilled tradespeople being available in the building industry. Reflecting this is research from the ABBTF, indicating the average age of a bricklayer is 46.
The Pt Augusta Youth Centre provided FCTA with the facility being used for this course. Finding a suitable location for training had been one of the issues preventing similar courses being run in Pt Augusta. Over the coming weeks the pre-apprenticeship team will begin work on a few projects within the Youth Centre, to showcase what they have learned. In week 2 the team have been learning some of the fundamental skills of bricklaying, that they will use throughout the course, and will give them an advantage over other people looking for working in the construction industry.
The first week of the CITB Pt Augusta Pre-Apprenticeship course, and the participants have already started learning how to lay bricks. FCTA takes training out of the classroom, and focuses on the development of practical hand skills. This helps our students gain an understanding of what its like to work in the construction industry. While building up the self esteem of students with learning or literacy difficulties.
FCTA- Building Careers have run numerous Pre-apprenticeship courses over the years, and have found these courses to be a great way for people to gain work in the construction industry.
The course runs for 10 weeks, and is full time from 8am – 3:30pm Monday – Friday.
Successful students will be awarded a Certificate II in Construction Pathways
Practical projects, in Bricklaying and Solid Plastering, will be the focus of the course to develop hand skills.
The course has been sponsored by the CITB, so there is no charge for students. If you are interested, please click on our CITB Flyer 19032012 Pt Augusta for more information. All applicants are required to meet with one of our team for a chat to discuss why they would like to do the course. Interviews will be held on March 8th from 10am – 2pm, at Employment Plus 12Chapel St, Pt Augusta. To book a time, please call us on 08 8367 5615, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
FCTA are in the process of arranging to run, one of the very popular, pre-apprenticeship courses in Pt Augusta. If you are interested, please contact us via email at email@example.com. The course will commence in March at a date to be confirmed.
FCTA- Building Careers have introduced an award for the most outstanding student to complete a pre-apprenticeship. Angelo was voted the best pre-apprentice by the trainers who worked with the team every day, with an average score of 90% across all his practical projects. Angelo is seeking an apprenticeship in Wall & Floor Tiling, but unfortunately does not have his license at the moment. That aside, it is easy to see the enormous value Angelo will be able to add to any work place. If you are seeking an apprentice in the north eastern suburbs with a great work ethic and proven ability, please call us at FCTA (8367 5615) to discuss the range of government incentives available.
