Over the last few years ABBTF has been refining its pre trade programs and now has a program that employers and GTO’s are lining up to source candidates from. The industry-endorsed Work Ready Program or WRP has been a great success over the last few years.
Northside bricklayer Brad Kruger of Kruger Developments Pty Ltd and Gold Coast Bricklayer Glen Abernethy from Precise Masonry have both endorsed the WRP program. Both employers have taken on one Apprentice through the program and are lining up again to take another. Glen said he would now only employ apprentices who have gone through the WRP.
