  • Job Type:Permanent
  • Location:Brisbane
  • Start Date: asap

A permanent full-time opportunity has become available with Blue Dog Training, an award-winning apprenticeship training provider in Construction and Engineering. The role will cover the Brisbane region.  Join an established team of very successful trainers (all experienced tradespeople) that share a passion for helping employers to pass on their skills to the next generation.

This is a fantastic opportunity to move off the tools whilst still being involved in the construction trade and working with a fantastic crew of like-minded tradespeople. 

This opportunity is ideal for a:

  • Trade qualified Carpenter/Builder that has experience sharing their knowledge with apprentices, either on a worksite or in a training environment
  • Patient and engaging communicator that is keen to support people to learn and achieve their best.

Attitude and personality (along with practical experience on the tools) are a priority for this position (over formal training experience/qualifications) and our client will support your career development with qualifications to become a recognised Trainer / Assessor (if you do not currently possess a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment).

If successful, you will need to enroll in and complete in a reasonable time frame the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. During which time you will be working alongside and mentored by a qualified trainer and when qualified you will be responsible for managing and coordinating apprentices throughout their training program – from initial sign up to completion of their apprenticeship (and everything in between). This includes:

  • Developing positive working relationships and rapport with apprentices and employers through regular communication and development of training plans that are well-aligned to the needs of the worksite.
  • Providing ongoing coaching, mentoring and guidance to apprentices to ensure positive progress and outcomes (including on-site training and practical assessment).
  • Explaining processes (including online training to supplement on-the-job training) and answering questions.
  • Applying your expert and pragmatic judgement to assess apprentice competency (against the unit of competency guidelines and applicable standards).
  • Maintaining efficient and effective filing and records management to meet all audit requirements, and organisational policies and procedures.
  • Providing your input (as part of the training team) to support the continual development and enhancement of training and assessment resources to support best practice.

As a Trainer/Assessor you will regularly visit employer work sites in the Brisbane area to provide onsite training and practical assessment.

To be considered for this opportunity, you will need to demonstrate:

  • Certificate III in Carpentry
  • Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is an advantage but not essential.
  • Eligibility to obtain a Blue Card (for working with children)
  • Current open drivers’ licence
  • Well-developed communication (verbal and written) and interpersonal skills.
  • A passion for training and mentoring apprentices
  • Experience in engaging, and sharing your knowledge, with young people (this could be on a work site or through previous sports coaching roles, etc)

This is an opportunity to join a progressive company at the forefront of apprenticeship training.  You will enjoy working with a great team of people that are committed to quality outcomes for apprentices and employers.

A competitive salary will be negotiated commensurate with skills and experience to recognise the credibility that you will bring to the team and the key role that the Trainer/Assessor plays in maintaining this training providers reputation and brand as a leader in the marketplace.
