JobTrainer package will keep apprentices in jobs and new opportunities
The $2 billion JobTrainer package announced by the federal government aims to keep young women and men in the building and construction industry working and give opportunities to those whose jobs have been lost in the economic devastation wrought by COVID-19.
“The building and construction industry trains more apprentices and provides more full-time jobs than any other sector in the economy. We look forward to being involved in the implementation of this $2 billion package,” Master Builders Australia chief executive Denita Wawn says.
“With the support of measures like JobTrainer, HomeBuilder and hopefully more stimulus measures and policy reforms in the future our industry will play a vital in rebuilding Australia.”
