Builders are urgently needed to take on college students completing Certificate II in Construction for work experience!

If you can assist please call Annette Doddridge at Tasmanian Building Group Apprenticeship Scheme on (03) 6169 1852 or email 

For more information please refer to the attached brochure.  In short TasbGAS will manage a pool of twenty students and will work with  you and the school to roster time on site.  The students will have their white cards, there will be no wages and workers compensation will be covered.



The 'LAPP' project is an initiative of TBCITB and partners Skills Tasmania, Housing Industry Australia (HIA), Master Builders Tasmania and TasBGAS, formed with the objective of taking advantage of the Launceston City Deal and upcoming major projects to increase apprenticeship takeup in the Launceston catchment area.

The immediate priorities are to:

1) Get a commitment from local builders to take on students who are doing Certificate II in Construction for around ten weeks work experience over the year.

2) Select 20 high quality students for a LAPP Scholarship that will assist with their training and placement.   

Attached is a letter that went out to all builders in the region. If you can assist with placement please make contact as indicated in the letter.

Also attached is a brochure with detail of the project and form targeted at potential scholarship candidates. If you know of someone that you believe would be interested, please print and hand on.
