Whether you’re a small or large building and construction business or enterprise, working on a domestic and commercial site, we can provide all your workforce and training requirements with skilled, qualified and motivated staff and apprentices. If working in the building and construction industry appeals to you, Skillinvest has a range of apprenticeships and traineeships for you to explore, including Carpentry Apprenticeships and more.

Why Skillinvest?

For over three decades, our experienced consultants have been providing apprenticeships in bricklaying/ blockmaking, cabinet making, carpentry, electrotechnology, painting and decorating, plastering, plumbing, stone masonry, and wall and floor tiling.

For young people aspiring to a career in the building and construction industry, we actively encourage them to start their training and skills development while at secondary school. Many students who transition successfully into full-time apprenticeships often start training while at school completing VET in Schools, a structured work placement, school-based apprenticeship, or a combination of these.

Skillinvest is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 4192) delivering a range of nationally recognised building and construction certificates and qualifications. We can provide accredited training for your apprentices and existing workforce and offer a number of short courses including White Card training under licence from WorkSafe Victoria. Select from established courses or we can tailor a training package or course to suit your business needs.

We find the flexibility at Skillinvest of being able to send the apprentices to school on the days that works in with us.
