Leavers is over… what comes next?

It’s always an exciting time of year for high school students, with the end of school and the start of summer, leavers are urged to think, “what comes next?”.

While it can be daunting for anyone to think of what comes next and where they want their life to head, making that decision doesn’t have to be as alarming as you might initially think!

For the leavers of 2018, it’s always important to remember just how many options exist that don’t require ATAR scores. Just because a large amount of leavers want to go to university, it isn’t necessarily the right decision for you and it doesn’t necessarily guarantee job prospects.

If the thought of the next few years being spent behind textbooks, assignments and exams isn’t for you, Skill Hire can help! As a training and employment provider, not only can  you get into nationally recognised training programs, but depending on what you choose, you can also earn money while you do it!

Having just finished high school, there are a number of opportunities available here at Skill Hire, so lets take a look!

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.
