Our Community Involvement
We are actively involved in a number of school-based programs to address long-term skills shortages and to introduce work opportunities and training to students.
Our programs provide a unique opportunity for students to gain real experience in the industry across a wide range of trades. We work with parents, students and teachers by holding career information sessions at schools and colleges as well as holding industry information sessions.
We have been working with Latham and Palmerston Primary schools for a number of years on student construction projects. We plan to extend this project into other local schools.
