This june the funding for training is changing in SA, what it will look like is still unclear to me though the picture is starting to sharpen up.
It begins to appear that anyone with a Certificate 1 or two can get free training up to and including a Cert III & IV. How this will take place is still being decided as I write this though the Victorian experience has shown the likely direction it will take barring minor changes.
As the Building Industry quietens down in South Australia it is a prime time to get your on the job work experience recognised and assessed towards gaining a Nationally recognised Qualification.
In previous posts I have spoken about, On-site assessing, CITB funded night courses, on the job experience and evidence and this becomes more and more important with this new funding as the gap training that you may need to complete the training could now be paid for in full as part of this scheme.
My advice for anyone in the wall and ceiling lining trade with out formal qualification is to look into this opportunity to become qualified. That applies to any trade or Cert III or Cert IV qualifications.
All they need to do now is to pay apprentices properly and we would be away on the right path to gaining more qualified tradespeople.
Don’t miss this opportunity look into it soon…Good luck
