What a week in the training world

Once again students amaze in the Try-A-Trades

The training division are funded through the Construction Industry fund (CTF) to deliver three or four day courses aimed at students in years 9 and 10 to come along and try their hand at a trade with a qualified trade trainer.

The short courses are a great opportunity for students to put on their work boots and come along to gain insight into the industry. Students can expect to learn safe working practices, the importance of communication, team work and most importantly enjoy practical demonstrations working alongside fellow classmates and a trade qualified trainer.

Most recently we have been working in the South West of Western Australia running the Try-A-Trade programs for surrounding schools, delivering training at the Busselton Trade Training Centre. The picture included above is an example of the great work the students achieved during a Try-A-Trade.


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.
