About the Program:
The Kickstart to Construction program is a joint initiative with the ACT Migrant and Refugee Settlement Services (MARSS), with funding from Skills Canberra, to provide basic language skills training and support to migrants and refugees. This program is funded under the Adult Community Education JobTrainer grants program, a jointly funded initiative of the ACT and Australian governments.
The training will include the mandatory on-site training of White Card, Silica and Asbestos Awareness, as well as non-accredited skills/knowledge training. The training includes a number of introductory topics specific to the building and construction industry, including: tool recognition, signage and symbols, teamwork and communication, and paperwork such as onsite incident reporting.
At the completion of this program, learners are ready to work in the construction industry. To that end, they are also assisted throughout the program to engage employment.
