These opportunities provide invaluable experience, helping participants to develop employability skills, prepare them for the workforce and assist with career pathway decisions by providing insight into a wide range of industries.
Opportunities may become available in the following industries and disciplines such as civil and general construction, landscaping, administration, marketing, real estate, engineering, design, surveying and demolition.
