Apprentice Policies

Below is a list of policies relating to Master Builders SA Apprentices. Please read carefully if you are interested in doing your apprenticeship with Master Builders SA.

Apprentice App

Here at Master Builders we provide our apprentices with a number of resources and tools to ensure their apprenticeship with us is smooth sailing from the get go!

Master Builders SA developed its Apprentice App to make it easy for our apprentices to access online platforms we use to submit timesheets, request leave, complete injury form and from time to time take our apprentice survey. Access to the App is provided after the Contract of Training is signed. The App includes the following:

  • Daily Take5
  • Weekly Timesheets
  • Apprentice Leave Form (includes sick leave and annual leave)
  • Apprentice Injury Form
  • Skill Assessment Form
  • Apprentice Survey
Financial Assistance

The first couple of years of your apprenticeship can be a financial struggle. Support is available to help you when you need it most, depending on the Australian apprenticeship you do and your situation. You may be eligible for one or more forms of financial support.

Trade Support Loans

Trade Support Loans are loans paid in instalments totalling up to $20,000, over the life of the apprenticeship. These loans help Australian apprentices with everyday costs while they complete their apprenticeship.
