Helping the next generation of our industry.

Helping the next generation of our industry.

Master Builders involvement in the Educational Pathways Program supporting the next generation.

Since November 2020, the Master Builders Association of NSW has supported the Educational Pathways Program (EPP) giving young people a taste of our industry. Launched by the NSW Department of Education, the EPP will continue until 2023. By being a part of this program, we aim to help the school students with making a career pathway into our industry.

“Supporting the next generation of the building industry is at the heart of what we do at Master Builders. The EPP is a fantastic opportunity for young people to start a potential career in our industry. Our aim is to help school students transition into a school-based apprenticeship or start a construction apprenticeship”, says Jody McGann, General Manager Education & Apprenticeships.

The program initiatives include:

  • Helping students into school-based apprenticeships and traineeships through mentoring and support
  • Expanding opportunities for school students to gain some hands-on experience and insights into the building and construction industry
  • Strengthening careers advice and job-ready life skills for young people.


Master Builders delivered the educational program hosted by Airds High School over 8 weeks from 16th February 2022. As part of the program, students are attending work experience with our training employers. A total of 14 Year 10 students from 7 different schools in the Campbelltown and Liverpool areas took part in learning from our industry expert trainer and on the job.

“When it came time for their practical the students were keen to learn, asked questions, wanted feedback on their skills, and were willing to learn. As a trainer, I can’t ask for anything more from the students, and I hope I have helped them gain a good taste of the industry”. says Master Builders Carpentry trainer Ashley Davies.

The students picked up some handy skills and are making connections with valuable industry contacts. They also earned units of competency for their efforts which they’ll be able to use as credit for the Certificate III in Carpentry apprenticeship. As part of the program, we wanted to give back to the school and build something useful. The students designed and constructed a timber picnic table to enjoy.

Master Builders Apprentice Services would like to take this opportunity to thank our training employers from the Campbelltown and Liverpool areas who are providing work experience for this program. Not only are you contributing to the confidence of a young person looking to start a career in the industry, but you are helping us make the program a success.

Providing work experience opportunities is a great way to give back to your community. Not only do the students benefit, but you also benefit from a Master Builders work experience program because:

  • it doesn’t cost you financially,
  • it’s good for your business profile and brand,
  • it can be a recruitment strategy for your business,
  • you gain some extra help on a building project,
  • and you are contributing to the next generation of the industry.

If you would like to support young people with work experience opportunities in the near future, please register your interest by going to our website or give Master Builders Apprentice Services a call.
