Exciting new infrastructure projects, including the University of Tasmania relocation and City Heart, are delivering more than just bricks and mortar. They are generating opportunities to take the first steps towards a lifelong career.
These projects are generating demand for a skilled, local building and construction workforce, and offer career pathways for young people across the region.
To ensure our young people can make the most of these opportunities, Skills Tasmania and the Tasmanian Construction Industry Training Board are working in tandem with the education sector to provide apprenticeships in the construction industry.
The Launceston apprenticeships pipeline project will support our young people into long term careers and ensure that industry has access to a local workforce with the skills it needs.
Apprenticeship numbers are already being bolstered through the pipeline program, which will create an extra 80 building and construction apprenticeships over the next three years.
