What is tradie2trainer?

South Australian training providers are struggling to attract qualified trainers. We know that there are many existing workers in the building and construction industry with immense knowledge of their trade or vocation who would be able to provide quality training to the next generation of workers at the standard the construction industry expects.

tradie2trainer is at no cost to the participant and aims to upskill existing workers to become a trainer, thereby sharing and passing on knowledge and skills for the benefit of the industry.

See the program guidelines below for further information.
