The nationwide tour has grown substantially this year, with 22 cities around New Zealand taking part, and more than 50 buses being used to take students around key locations in the construction industry.
The tour will introduce students to the opportunities of the building and construction industry. Students will visit some of the country’s biggest construction sites and developments, and will be shown why a career in construction is a fantastic path. It will also provide a chance for the students to connect with industry leaders who may be their future employers.
The Big Construction Tour is happening on Thursday 7 July in a number of regions around New Zealand including, Nelson, Christchurch, Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Rotorua, Gisborne, Napier, Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Wellington, Otago and Southland.
Carpentry apprentices from across New Zealand are being called to show their skills and compete in the Registered Master Builders CARTERS 2017 Apprentice of the Year.
Kicking off on 10 April in Auckland, the Not Your Average Tradie Road Trip will see a group of talented BCITO apprentices spending four weeks visiting different regions, helping out community organisations, charities and schools with building woes.
