The National Apprenticeships Program (NAP), which helps talented Australian workers gain a trade qualification within eighteen months, has secured its second Western Australian contract. The Federally-funded program is currently recruiting for 15 adult apprenticeships for Leighton Contractors. “Lately, the focus has been on job losses within the resources sector,” said NAP Program Director Alan Sparks. “Our Program, working in conjunction with this sector, is re-opening doors to new employment opportunities.” Leighton Contractors’ General Manager People and Capability, Jane Sherlock said NAP was an enhancement to current apprenticeship training provided by Leighton Contractors “We’ve mainly focused on full apprenticeships within the resources sector, but NAP gives us an avenue to deliver formal, focused and trade-related workforce development into our civil construction business so we can provide competent, work-ready people at a faster pace,” said Ms Sherlock. “The program also allows us to enhance our vocational educational training for external people joining the company, not to mention our existing workforce,” she said.
