Rocky apprentices start careers

NINETEEN Rockhampton workers are embarking on new careers after the JM Kelly group put them on as apprentices.

The new apprentices will work on several different projects around the region including the Rockhampton Hospital, the Mater Hospital, Hungry Jacks and the Yeppoon Town Hall.

The new recruits bring the number of apprentices hired by the JM Kelly Group to 75.

Apprentice co-ordinator Bill Shaw said he was excited about the new employees and said JM Kelly had committed to the building industry and believed that apprenticeships were the key to future progression and expansion within the industry.

Mr Shaw said his role was to work with the new apprentices as a mentor and to help them with any questions along the way.

He said JM Kelly was working as a training co-provider with the Central Queensland Institute of TAFE.

“This means that we can deliver the same training that the apprentice would normally receive at TAFE,” Mr Shaw said.

“This training agreement means that the apprentice gets to learn the same theory but also gets to stay ‘on the tools’ for more of his or her apprenticeship.”
