At Master Builder’s we take social sustainability seriously. We are committed to an industry that is inclusive, diverse, and supportive and are actively engaged in providing a wide range of opportunities for our local community. Social sustainability is built into everything we do in education and apprenticeships. It’s what we know and what we have been doing for many years. It is one of the many reasons we are the leading voice in our industry.
Increasingly, we see many of our clients required to meet social sustainability criteria as part of contractual obligations for building projects in greater Sydney and regional NSW. At Master Builders, we have the skills and expertise to help your business meet these contractual obligations. And we make it straightforward for you.
We are proud of our record in diversity and inclusion. In 2022, 7.5% of Master Builders Apprentices identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander – a record figure for our Industry’s participation. Master Builders has strong community relationships with organisations in western Sydney to help young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people reach their full potential with access to life-long learning.
Master Builders is proud to support more women in construction than ever before. Of all Master Builders Carpentry apprentices, 7.8% are female. This is more than double the industry NSW average of 2% and reinforces our commitment to gender diversity. We have valuable resources to assist women in construction including mentoring with a dedicated field officer support program. And our pre-apprenticeship programs have significantly contributed to helping females start an apprenticeship.
The average age of a Master Builder’s apprentice is 24.7 years, which cements our reputation as a training organisation that seeks to support people in all stages of their career path. More than 50.7% of Master Builders apprentices in 2022 commenced as adults. We can help you provide a workforce that is diverse and inclusive connecting local people with local jobs.
The construction industry has been identified as one of the state’s priority industry growth areas. Master Builders is a NSW Government Smart and Skilled training provider contracted to deliver fee-free courses. We can help you find out if you are eligible for a subsidised place in Certificate III, Certificate IV, and Diploma level qualifications.

We are proud of our record to date and committed to helping businesses such as yours to achieve your diversity and social sustainability goals. It is why we are the leading education and apprenticeship services provider in building and construction.
