Who we are looking for

FCTA – Building Careers (RTO Code: 40057) is looking for motivated and committed people, preferably under the age of 21, who want to start a career as a bricklaying apprentice.

Bricklaying apprentices undertake physically demanding work across a variety of sites in metropolitan Adelaide. Participants need to be physically fit and must have, or be in the process of obtaining, a driver’s licence.

Women and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.

  • additional ‘job ready’ training and hands on experience on a live training site through the delivery of a community project for the Playford Women’s Shed.
  • nationally-accredited units from the Certificate III in Bricklaying and Blocklaying (Partial) (CPC30111) including:
