By now most people have experienced the realisation of the enormous impact COVID-19 has made in people's lives both long and short term. Already over a million people have lost their jobs. This account reinforces the huge challenges being faced by large sections of our economy.
Thankfully it is business as usual at Newcastle MBA Apprenticeship Schemes, however this comes with new strict hygiene rules for building sites, to safeguard the future of operations and its people and minimise the chance of outbreaks.
It is pleasing to see also that state and federal governments perceive the need to keep the building and construction industry operating as it is an essential service to the community.
This is good for our apprentices and trainees as they are working and continuing their trade studies, ensuring future trade numbers will be at reliable numbers.
Overall this is a major challenge for the nation's second biggest industry, and we are in the driver's seat of the economic activity needed to stimulate job activity to see our country through this crisis, but we will need to be diligent with the good hygiene and social distancing practices that have been put in place.
Offsite hygiene behavior is just as important, and the rules must be adhered to.
We have building apprentices from 4th year to 1st year ready for hire, so call your local building experts if you need an extra pair of hands on site.
