Building Futures For Central Coast School Leavers

An exciting opportunity to kick start a career in construction is being offered to school leavers across the Central Coast, through a two-year paid traineeship.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said applications are now open to Year 12 students who are interested in working in the construction industry under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Traineeship Program.


“The Infrastructure Traineeship Program will provide participants with experience across government and private sectors while they complete a qualification. It’s rare to see an opportunity so comprehensive for students straight out of school,” Mr Crouch said.


“Not only will the traineeship provide practical industry experience and networks across multiple sectors, it will also give school leavers an opportunity to gain real life experience within the work force. This will ensuring they are equipped for future jobs throughout our region.


“Yvette L’Olive from Avoca Beach was one of the successful applicants from the programs first intake. Yvette is currently working towards her Certificate IV in Project Management Practice.


“I encourage any student from the class of 2021, who may be interested in doing a traineeship to apply for this year’s intake.”


“This is a pathway that sets young people up for a future in the infrastructure sector by providing a fantastic employment opportunity and a chance for them to get their foot in the door.”


Last year was the program’s first intake which received 2200 applications for 137 traineeship positions.


Applications for the 2022 intake are now open. Year 12 school leavers can find out more and apply for the program here.
