Our Workplace Apprenticeship Educators are no strangers to working on building sites. Many of us have been tradies or Training Advisors, and understand how the industry works.

Carpentry qualifications and connections


Beyond achieving a carpentry qualification, we aim to ensure that apprentices feel a sense of belonging within the broader construction community. Not only for work opportunities, but also to promote positive well-being and provide a support network when needed.

By collaborating with experts in the wellness sector, Builders Academy equips our field team with the necessary tools and contacts to guide apprentices and their employers through the challenges that may arise on their journey to becoming tradespeople.
