NSW Infrastructure Trainee Research Reports

Three waves of surveys were undertaken with trainees in December 2021, June 2022 and December 2022. Interviews were also conducted with a sub-set of 15 trainees between March and April 2022.

This research provided a unique opportunity to collect data from school-leavers who were engaged in a program that combined classroom-based vocational education with work placements with construction organisations. Consequently, the trainees were able to reflect on their experiences and observations in their work placement to inform their thinking about whether or not they would ultimately pursue a career in the construction industry on completion of the traineeship.
