D2C Flexible Industry Pathway (FIP)
Flexible Industry Pathways (FIPs) have been designed in partnership with industry to identify qualifications appropriate for school students that contain the skills, knowledge and experience valued by employers. FIPs provide an industry-endorsed pathway to employment, better preparing young people for real-world jobs, while simultaneously providing a pipeline of young skilled workers for South Australia’s growing building & construction industry.
doorways2construction Flexible Industry Pathways currently include:
- Building & Construction
- Civil Construction (refer to Advanced Skills Clusters for further information)
Key components to the success of doorways2construction are work experience and industry immersion. Through various initiatives, CITB provides support to schools, RTOs, and key industry stakeholders to encourage student participation.
The VET for School Students (VSS) List outlines the courses subsidised by the South Australian Government available to South Australian School Students.
CITB’s support for registered students in a D2C FIP:
Year 11 students who are participating in a D2C FIP will receive a CITB D2C PPE pack which includes a Hi Viz shirt, earmuffs, safety specs, gloves, glove clip, hard hat, and backpack.
CITB also subsidise short courses for students including White Card and KESAB Cleansite.
As part of CITB's Career Driven Program, we are offering doorways2construction students 3 hours of free driving lessons to support them in their pursuit of a successful career in the building and construction industry.
Eligible students must:
- hold a Learner's Permit, and;
- be registered in a doorways2construction FIP
Current doorways2construction students who access the 3 hours of free lessons can then access another 7 hours of free lessons (10 in total) if they receive a letter of offer for employment as an apprentice/trainee or gain a school-based or full-time apprenticeship in a CITB eligible qualification.
For information on how to apply and book lessons please refer to the Career Driven webpage.
