Get Into Construction 2024

Learn more about the Get Into Construction programme with The King's Trust Australia.

Construction is one of Australia's fastest-growing biggest industries. It offers great opportunities for young people to build a successful career for a great work-life balance, job security, career advancements and much more.

The King’s Trust Australia is proud to announce we will be supporting young people to Get Into the construction industry in partnership with First Choice Apprentices.

The 2024 “Get Into Construction” programme will give three young people the chance to gain paid hands-on experience with KANE Constructions on The Prince’s Quarter construction site in Glebe, Sydney.  

A partnership between the New South Wales Land and Housing Corporation and The King’s Trust Australia, the Prince's Quarter is an exciting new sustainable social housing project. Comprising upwards of 75 new social apartments and terrace houses, the Prince’s Quarter is a deliberate response to the need to do density well by ensuring new development fits in with the existing character of established neighbourhood.

Run over four weeks, participants will acquire the basic skills, safety equipment and tickets (including their First Aid Certificate and White Card) to ‘Get Into’ the construction industry and get started in their careers.

Globally, The King's Trust's ''Get Into” programmes has helped over 3,000 young people get into industry last year, and we are pleased to be helping young Australians Get Into the construction industry in 2024, in partnership with First Choice Apprentices.

Dates

The programme will run for four weeks from the 27 May to 21 June 2024, with week 1 spent getting training and safety gear, and weeks 2-4 getting hands-on with KANE Constructions on-site in Glebe.

Location

Glebe, Sydney, New South Wales
