Habitat for Human­ity Fiji partnered the Australia-Pa­cific Technical College (APTC) and supported by Asian Development Bank (ADB), to provide an opportunity to a group of 20 Fijian wom­en to learn construction work.

CPC20112 Certificate II in Construction pro­gramme for women is designed to offer stu­dents the opportunity to gain skills and qualifica­tions in the construction industry, while simulta­neously assisting with the construction of four real homes.

This requires appli­cants to have basic prior knowledge of construc­tion and building. The 18-week programme started on August 6 in Suva after the construc­tion of actual homes as part of practical assess­ment.

The participants are provided with guidance and support to study the concepts, management tools and techniques as part of classroom learning. The mentors then work closely with them to apply these skills to elevate the performance of their existing carpentry knowledge.

Graduates of this course will receive an internationally recognised Certificate II Australian qualification, which will be issued through TAFE Queensland.
