Skill Hire has been awarded a new contract working with the Department of Education and Training. Skill Hire have been confirmed as a WA provider of new Australian Government Initiative, ISMAA (Industry specialist mentoring for Australian Apprentices) for the construction industry.

ISMAA is a Government Initiative to support, mentor and assist apprentices and trainees throughout their apprenticeship with the end goal to increase retention rates and see more Australian apprentices complete their training contracts.

Throughout this two year contract, Skill Hire will market, mentor and guide around 1300 Australian apprentices in the construction industry. Our vision is to work with the next generation of trades people, to do all in our power to ensure they complete their apprenticeship and to set them up for a successful, sustainable career.

What is Industry Specialist Mentoring for Australian Apprentices (ISMAA)?

  • ISMAA is funded by the Australian Government and provides intensive support to apprentices and trainees in the first two years of their training in industries that are undergoing structural change
  • ISMAA complements other Australian Government support for apprentices, trainees and their employers through the Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program, Trade Support Loans and the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network
  • ISMAA is delivered by Service Providers across Australia in major cities as well as rural and regional areas


Skill Hire really helped me to see that I can accomplish something if I set my mind to it and I completed my course 2 months prior to the completion date. Cheers guys!


Skill Hire are helpful and professional. Nicola was attentive to all my needs. Their timesheets systems were a breeze and always update us with messages. Thanks Skill Hire


I just wanted to thank Skill Hire's EST Trainers. Nathan is the absolute best trainer I’ve ever had privilege to meet by a WIDE margin and I appreciate everything done for all of us. I’m ecstatic about the internship opportunity.


Not only did Skill Hire respond quickly to our urgent need, your team took the time to understand our organization and our needs. The people sent to help out were outstanding and their ability to rapidly adapt to our workplace eased our burden during what was a very challenging few months.


My son has thoroughly enjoyed the Construction Pathways course. He spent the last 18 months being home schooled and not socializing with anyone so to see him eager to get up and leave the house every day still blows my mind. Simon, thank you for your understanding and taking extra care with my son.


I wanted to say a big thank you to Skill Hire and the team, especially Wayne for such an amazing experience for our students. All of our students were thoroughly engaged with the course and learned many valuable skills.
