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 six 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. 

Any enquiries may be directed to staff of the Board at (03) 6223 7804 or
