NINETEEN-YEAR-OLD Tony Hale has a bright future ahead of him after taking part in SANDBAG’s construction traineeship Building our Community.
The program is part of the Skilling Queenslander’s for Work (SQW) initiative which is funded and supported by the State Government.
It is one of the many programs SANDBAG offers to help people find and hold jobs in the local community.
Mr Hale graduated recently and began a carpentry apprenticeship with local builder Abode Constructions, after undertaking a work trial with them as part of his traineeship.
Another graduate Robert Clayton was offered a full-time job with Sandgate Pest Control this week.
SANDBAG Work Skills and Pathways Facilitator Luci Davey said it was wonderful that Justin Andrews of Abode Constructions approached SANDBAG as a hiring option for his business.
“Local employers are encouraged to contact SANDBAG if they have job opportunities as graduates will be ready and willing to work,” Ms Davey said.
