Beacon partners with Fairbrother for building and construction program

Year 10 students from Kings Meadows High School attended a Beacon Growth Industry Preparation Program (GrIPP) today to learn about careers in building and construction. The day included a site tour of the UTAS northern transformation at Inveresk, hearing about the diversity of jobs and innovations across the build.

Fairbrother Apprentice Program Manager, Matthew Scrimgeour, co-facilitated the program alongside Beacon’s Jake Snepvangers. Matthew and a team of Fairbrother mentors shared industry insights and advice on how to pursue a career in the sector, including key skills and attributes employers are looking for.

Thank you to Matthew and the Fairbrother mentors for making this invaluable opportunity possible for the students. Thank you also to David Cox – Hawthorn Football Club for providing access to the Hawks boardroom for the day!
