What is the Construction traineeship?
This is a unique traineeship undertaking a project-based work placement on a Queensland Government funded training program. It is focused on developing vocational and employability skills for long-term unemployed and disadvantaged job seekers and providing them with more pathways into employment and vocational qualifications. Skills and confidence will be developed on the job in the context of a community-based project.
Trainees will obtain an introduction to the construction industry, its culture, occupations, job roles and workplace expectations. The units of competency trained within the traineeship cover essential work health and safety requirements, the industrial and work organisation structure, communication skills, work planning, and basic use of tools and materials. The training is built around a basic construction project unit that integrates the skills and embeds the facets of employability skills in context.
This traineeship is a full-time job, in a real work environment. Our role is to prepare you for the workforce, so there will be high expectations in place regarding your attendance, participation and professionalism.

I was looking for work but just couldn’t find anything. My girlfriend’s mum found the program, it sounded great so I signed up straight away. I really enjoyed learning hands-on skills throughout the program, and I now feel motivated to become an automotive engineer; making parts for cars.Grady Wingfield Engineering Work Pathway
I love what Challenge Employment provide for the community and I feel businesses in the area should embrace the programs like Total Steel have. It is rewarding to see the difference some formalised training can do to assist people with little skills and experience to develop into a skilled employee.Johnathan Ditchburn State Manager QLD - Total Steel
