CALEDONIA IS LEADING THE WAY IN PROVIDING LONG TERM CAREERS IN SCAFFOLDING FOR OUR YOUTH.
Highly skilled and experienced Scaffolders are in short supply and high demand in Australia. Recognising a skills shortage of highly skilled and experienced scaffolders, a comprehensive and unique Traineeship Program was first developed and implemented in Adelaide in 2013 and following that in Perth in 2014.
Some of the first group of trainees who are now qualified scaffolders have advanced to becoming leading hands and are now providing leadership and support to the latest intakes of Trainees.
We offer full-time traineeships and trainees will receive on-the-job experience and mentoring from our employees and external training partners. Successful candidates will learn the business from the ground up and will attain CERT III Scaffolding upon completion of their traineeship.
The trainee scaffolder forms an important part of the scaffolding team and is able to gain hands-on skills and work experience while earning a wage. The traineeship enables the trainees to acquire training and skill development in scaffold erection and dismantling scaffolding to provide work platforms on building or industrial sites, or for temporary structures such as stages, seating and catwalks.
Caledonia has a company appointed Manager who has sole responsibility for overseeing the Scaffolding Traineeship Program. In addition, qualified Scaffolders are assigned to trainees as mentors to provide further coaching and development.
Caledonia traineeships are comprehensive and designed toproduce highly skilled and experienced scaffolders at the completion of their training. We always seek to retain quality, high level skills and experience within our company and where we are able to, offer further development opportunities within a supervisory and or management capacity.
