I Construct

Hero banner

We have teamed up with the South Australian government and Adelaide-based industry and expert partners to create a four-week introduction to the construction industry. 

If you identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and are keen to learn a trade, then the I Construct pre-apprenticeship program could be for you!

What's involved?

The program includes:

  • Modules in bricklaying, painting, tiling, plastering and carpentry
  • An Individual Training and Support Plan (ITSP)
  • Pre-employment, employment and cultural awareness training
  • Specialised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mentoring
  • Your own set of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Once you have successfully completed the pre-apprenticeship program, you will be considered for a full-time apprenticeship with a private employer, or a Group Training Organisation through the SA Housing Authority's 250 Apprenticeships Program.

The pre-apprenticeship modules will count toward your apprenticeship qualification, allowing you to reach your goal faster.

How can I get involved?

To qualify, you need to:

  • Identify as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person
  • Be aged 16 or over and not enrolled in school
  • Hold a car or motorbike driver’s licence or learner’s permit
  • Be motivated and committed to working in the construction industry
