Build Your Career

Build Your Career is a full-time, 11-week building and construction pre-employment training course. It combines classroom learning delivered by Registered Training Organisation SYC and hands on construction experience gained while refurbishing an SA Housing Authority property. Site locations vary and will be confirmed with participants before the course begins.

Participants will learn skills needed to prepare for work with builders engaged by SA Housing Authority.

The program combines units from Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways (FSK20113) with some units from Certificates I and II in Construction (CPC20111 and CPC20112).

Following completion of the course, SA Housing Authority will organise graduate work placements and job trials with builders.

Doorways 2 Construction

Doorways2Construction (D2C) is a two-part program that gives senior students at participating schools a pathway to a career in construction as part of their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

D2C is recognised in the SACE at Stage 1 credits, while D2C Plus is recognised at Stage 2 credits and provides a seamless pathway into a partial Certificate III.

Year 11 students participating in D2C begin the program at Certificate I or II level, with a general introduction to construction skills, worksite safety, career development and knowledge.

Building Links provides senior students at selected schools with opportunities to take part in a course with a construction pathway.

Like D2C, Building Links is recognised in SACE Stage 1 credits and combines structured workplace training at a live construction site, practical work sessions and theory. As part of the course, students will gain valuable hands-on experience while renovating and remodelling existing Housing SA properties.

Participating Year 11 students will undertake training at a Certificate I or II level with a general introduction to construction skills, knowledge, career development and worksite safety
