New trades program launched in Mareeba
THE new “Taste of Trades” program was officially launched in Mareeba last week as young workers and stakeholders gathered at the Mareeba Cricket Club.
Program facilitator, Skills360, met with local construction industry employers and the Mareeba Cricket Club who is a venue partner.
Program participants will learn trade skills while painting the club, along with work experience with local employers.
Those who take part in the 12-week hands on course will obtain a Certificate 1 in Construction, and get career mentoring and work placement support and help them prepares for apprenticeship careers in a variety of construction trades.
