We currently have Bricklayers and Tilers looking to hire apprentices. They are after ‘work ready’ apprentices, people who have some basic skills and are aware of what working in the building industry is like. The Certificate II in Construction (CPC20112) is an excellent course that provides students with an introduction to the following trades:
- Bricklaying (2 employers currently looking for apprentices as of 31/1/2017
- Tiling (4 tilers looking for apprentices as of 31/1/2017)
- Plastering (labourers positions appearing regularly on gumtree)
- Concreting (2 employers seeking labourers)
- Scaffolding – up to 4metres (shortage of scaffolders in Adelaide – especially around festival/ major event times)
Employers contact us directly looking for students to recommend. We also check adverts for jobs every morning and have close industry ties to give students extra guidance. Applicants will have the opportunity to see other pre-apprentices in action on the trade floor. Students will be working side by side with existing apprentices so they can discuss the industry, find out what life as a tradie is like, and see how over time how their skills develop.
If you are interested in applying, please email [email protected] or call 8367 5615.
Over the last 2 months we have been inundated with phone calls from employers looking for both apprentices and experienced tradespeople.
Currently we have 6 vacancies for bricklaying apprentices, 2 solid plastering apprenticeships, 5 tiling apprenticeships and employers seeking qualified bricklayers. If you have a car, a good work ethic, like working outdoors and are reliable, you have a great chance of getting work in the building industry right now. Most employers seek junior – under 21 year olds – for apprenticeships. It is still possible for adults to gain apprenticeships, employers will be seeking people who are ‘work ready’ in this situation.
The building industry is one of the few industries people can work in and have a direct path to becoming their own boss in less than 5 years. If you are would like to discuss any of the job opportunities, or find out more call us on 8367 5615 or email [email protected]

Ray completed a pre-apprenticeship course at FCTA before finding work as an apprentice bricklayer. This week he completed all his trade school training, with his final project – building a fireplace.
