Welcome to Skills.
Simply put, we help tradies get recognised and qualified for the skills they learn on the job. We work with more than 20 industries and they’re some of the most in-demand trades in the construction sector – so there’s always plenty of opportunities out there!
Our main job is to make your training experience a smooth one. We do this by providing the resources you need, supporting you in areas of learning you need help with, and connecting you with the right people to help you on your journey.
In fact, we take your success so seriously that we have a national network of field staff dedicated to looking after you. They’re all really good blokes and gals who just want to help you with your training, or even just catch up for a chat when you need it.
With a trade qualification in your toolbox, you’re pretty much set for life. Your skills will be in demand wherever you go. And if you decide to push yourself, you can even become your own boss.
