Mountain Heights School students ‘Get Into Civil’

Mountain Heights School in Queenstown, in partnership with the Industry Training Hub and Link Resources, have developed a ‘Get Into Civil’ program designed to support skills in civil construction, language, literacy and numeracy and employability work readiness.

The program, proudly funded by Keystone Tasmania, is an opportunity to more closely connect students in remote areas with the civil sector in a practical way.

The grade 10-12 students (pictured) look forward to gaining accredited training in working at heights, entering confined spaces, operating hand and power tools, gas testing atmospheres, and foundation skills.

Keystone’s Strategic Project Manager – Workforce Development, Brett Withington, attended the course to meet the students and observe the project in action. “The students were incredibly engaged learning about the important aspects of site safety in the construction industry,” said Brett.
