Introducing Advancing Apprenticeships!


Introducing Advancing Apprenticeships!

The Advancing Apprentices Fund initiative is proudly funded by the Queensland Government.

In partnership with Master Electricians Australia and the Queensland Government, The Add Staff Group is proud to announce the official launch of the Advancing Apprenticeships program at the MEA, North Queensland awards night in Cairns, Mackay and Townsville.

The Advancing Apprenticeships program is a 12-month initiative designed to address the emerging skills shortages in the Queensland electrotechnology sector.

A series of roadshows and events will take place across Queensland to create awareness of the financial and non-financial benefits available to employers of apprentices.

The program will also target jobseekers with campaigns at schools, careers fairs and job expos, generating awareness of the career opportunities available in the electrotechnology sector.

We are incredibly excited to launch this program, with the forecast industry demands for electricians and HVAC technicians expected to surpass the available supply of skilled tradespeople, it is critical to invest in apprentices now to contribute to future workforce and industry demands.
