New Kids on the Block

News Article from Wednesday 29th March 2017

The new Toowoomba Construction Skills Program trainees are here!

The new trainees will be completing their individual White Card, First Aid and CPR assessments and are now spending a few days in the classroom at DGT’S all new training centre doing theory work on Work Health & Safety (WH&S) and relevant industry topics.

They will move into the workshop in the coming weeks and commence practical tasks involving hand and power tools usage and simple timber exercises of measuring, cutting and assembling small timber cut outs.

Their trainer will be Ian Jolly and he will be assisted by one of the previous trainees Suzanne who was plucked from the program after showing some serious potential. 

The main focus for our trainees will be to be part of the solution by completing practical works at the worthy local organisation Sunrise Way.

Sunrise Way is a local residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre with a long term holistic approach to recovery. Sunrise Way describes their goals on their website as below;

"Sunrise Way is supporting stronger, healthier communities through rebuilding individual lives affected by addiction.

The goal of the Sunrise Way residential programme is to enable clients to understand their addiction, manage their mental health, develop skills and strategies to maintain sobriety and rebuild their lives."

After receiving hundreds of applications these were the lucky 15 chosen to represent DGT and themselves at Sunrise Way to train in practical hands on Construction skills.
