With the class of 2020 set to receive their HSC results today, a new two-year infrastructure traineeship is being offered by the NSW Government to 100 students.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the traineeship would commence in February 2021.
“Only 100 positions are on offer, so I urge Central Coast-based school leavers to consider grabbing this golden opportunity while it’s still available,” Mr Crouch said.
“The traineeship will include immediate employment opportunities working as part of the project team responsible for delivering NSW’s largest ever school building program.
“This traineeship is unique and will provide well-rounded experience in the infrastructure sector, setting each person up for a very strong career.
“Providing our young people with more opportunities, whether through TAFE, university or other pathways is a priority for the NSW Government, particularly after this uncertain year.”
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the traineeships would be a great way for students to gain insight into the infrastructure industry and the diverse careers available.
“Recently graduated Year 12 students can continue their learning in 2021, allowing them to develop hands on experience across a range of construction based fields,” Ms Mitchell said.
The traineeship is a collaboration between NSW Government infrastructure agencies and approved industry partners. Training Services NSW has committed to cover the cost of each trainee’s Certificate III and IV, as well as other mandatory First Aid and White Card training.
The NSW Government is investing $7 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver more than 200 new and upgraded schools. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
