Introduction

Doorways 2 Construction (D2C) is a Vocational Education and Training (VET)
initiative set up by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) in conjunction
with the secondary schooling sectors of South Australia. The program is designed to
assist secondary students learn about the skills in the building and construction
industry and gives them the opportunity to experience the various career pathways
within the industry. D2C provides very real outcomes for hundreds of young people,
not only injecting them with a renewed interest in their schooling by offering an
alternative pathway, but also by getting them started in a career in the building and
construction industry.

D2C is a VET framework rather than a prescriptive model designed to assist schools,
industry and the community establish building and construction focussed training
programs. This means, key program outcomes are specified and guidelines are
provided as to the best way to achieve these outcomes within the resources
available.

The aims of the D2C program are to:
1. Create more awareness of building and construction among young people
2. Provide students with accurate information about career opportunities and the
   skills necessary to successfully seek work in the industry
3. Develop basic skills and knowledge that students can take into the industry

In addition to the aims the D2C program is based on the following key principles:
1. Through the Doorways 2 Construction program students are encouraged to
    develop a pattern of lifelong learning that will ensure the workers of the future
    have a culture of keeping up to date with new technologies.
2. The Doorways 2 Construction program actively works to develop in young people
    the skills, attitudes and attributes that the building and construction industry
    needs to be strong and vibrant in the 21st century.
3. Doorways 2 Construction allows students to develop an understanding of the
    building and construction industry based on fact and positive experiences.
4. Doorways 2 Construction empowers schools to deliver vocational education and
    training to industry standards and assists them to develop networks and contacts
    within the industry to ensure sustainability.
5. School communities are encouraged to develop programs, which incorporate
    industry/community projects on which their students can work.
6. Structured work placement is an ongoing component of D2C where students
    work in the industry during their time in the program.
7. Wherever possible students should be under the supervision of a qualified
    industry person eg. trades person, site supervisor
8. A Training Record Book must be used record each student’s achievement of
    competence.
9. The Training Package Certificate 1 in General Construction forms the basis of the
    teaching and learning program.
10. Students and teaching staff should complete ‘Green Card’ or the State OH&S
    Training and a site specific induction prior to commencing work placement in the
    industry.
11. Project work is not to replace the work placement component of the Doorways 2
    Construction course.
12. All partners including the building/construction organisation or association,
    school, registered training organisation and CITB sign a Doorways 2 Construction
    memorandum of understanding.

               2006/7 program overview

                       Cardijn College

                    (On Hold for 2007)

Cardijn College started a D2C program in 2003 as part of the Southern Futures Vocational College strategy
and operates as a regional cluster program on Fridays.

Opening of the new Skills Centre at Cardijn                  Students undertaking a site       visit   at   the   new
                                                             Commonwealth Law Courts




The Cardijn College D2C program puts students’ needs at the centre of the education service by offering an
inclusive and safe learning environment with flexible and innovative approaches to teaching and learning methods.
The project based methodologies and hands-on learning means that D2C students spend very little time in a
traditional classroom environment. The majority of teaching and learning is done onsite and is based on relevant
industry competencies. Students work in small groups and complete learning activities, while supported by a
qualified teacher, assessor and tradesperson. Anthea Yeates facilitates the program and has assistance in the
delivery of the competencies from Colin Russell who has a Builders licence and also works at Cardijn College.

The Registered Training Organisation, Master Builders Association has an active role in the training delivery and
assessment

Hills/Murraylands – ‘School and Beyond’.
The Hills Murraylands Cluster operates over 6 school campuses – Heathfield HS, Oakbank AS, Birdwood
HS, Mt Barker East Murray AS and Murray Bridge HS.
These have successfully developed in-house and community projects since 2002 with 2 Tradesmen
delivering the course. Dick Weeks is based at Heathfield HS and Brian Sheppard at Oakbank AS.
Heathfield HS D2C students were successful in winning a construction grant to build a dedicated D2C
Workshop and provided labour and expertise in the construction of a mezzanine carpark into a student
facility/lunch area. Almost $180,000 was spent in its development.
Birdwood continues to have a good relationship with its community and is currently building overnight
Huts for Dept Environ at Mt Crawford Forest.
Oakbank AS has also had a long standing partnership with the operators of the Oakbank Race Track and
SAJC.
Ongoing building maintenance is required and D2C students are afforded this opportunity.
East Murraylands are a new program this year and have already funded tool trailers and source
workplace projects within their community.

                Eyre Peninsula Cluster
This Cluster consists of 8 programs or delivery centres. This would normally not be
recommended, however, the distances between schools are too great to afford any
other program sharing arrangements. Schools involved are:
Pt. Linc. HS (Guy Bagshaw)
St Josephs College (Steve Glacken)
Elliston AS (Bill Hosking)
Streaky Bay AS (Ian Picken)
Karcultaby AS (Ty Redden)
Cummins AS (Bob Coombes)
Cleve AS (Bob Coombes)
Ceduna AS (Mark Prince)



Over the past 4 yrs, these schools have formed strong personal networks within their
communities. These form a variety of arrangements from workplacements to
Apprenticeship waiting lists, materials to resource sharing.
Clas sizes vary from 15 at Pt Linc. to 1 at Karcultaby. The average number is around
6-7 perclass.
Development on the Far West Coast suggest that up-takes should be strong over the
next 3-5 years. Program projects vary from beach-front maintenance and development
to in-house projects.

structures at school then going off-site to erect them.

Training is based around live works projects including:
    »   Paving and seating
    »   Bird hide
    »   Play ground equipment
    »   Shed Enclosure
    »   Pergolas

Henley Beach High School
Henley Beach HS initiated the D2C program in 2005. The school clearly had a direction and
purpose to add Building and Construction to its current VET offering. To this end, some $15000
was allocated over 3yrs to purchase equipment and support the teacher with additional
resources.

As a result of the quality of its first year program, some 42 students were interviewed for 15
places.
The program initially started with in-house construction projects but this year have venture out
into the community via Council and surf-club support.

Investigator College – Goolwa
Investigator College initiated the D2C program in 2006. It has been heavily supported by the
school both financially and with staffing resources since its inception and continues to grow and
now supports students from Eastern Fleurieu and Victor Harbour HS.
This year will see the program expand itself into the community with requests from both the
School Council and Rotary to build a house on school owned property. This will form the centre
of a community house used to service the interests of an aging Church membership.

The current teacher Will Duykers, has a trades background and will supervise this project from
scratch.

          Minalton District School
Minlaton commenced its D2C program in 2003 and since then it has gained community support beyond
what would normally be expected for a regional program. The school has brokered the support of the
largest local builder on central southern Yorke Peninsula, the Council and the Yorke Regional
Development Board.
Together, under the direct supervision of TAPE Homes, several caravan park cabins have been built from
ground up and these have 4 and 5 Star rating. The Council operates some 11 caravan parks across the

Issues

      The capacity of RTO to support programs is being stretched. IS CITB prepared to pay for
RTO services? If we consider paying for the RTO services, we may need to be more demanding in
respect of industry outcomes.
      Would be great if some of the SSABSA VET Stage 2 Options could be endorsed by CITB and
schools able to access training materials (eg books) so that students continuing on can still be
part of the program but gain Group status as well as a possible TER score

      Financial Implications - We have a VISA (Vet in School Agreement) and this has proved to be
very cost effective.

     Risks – slow down of development, Council withdrawing funds and project ideas, uptake of
post-doorways pathways

     Recommendation – CITB continues to endorse and have strong presence in the region.

       2004 program overview

         Pasadena High School


Pasadena High school launched their D2C program early in 2004. Working closely with the local community and
the Master Builders Association the program has worked on a range of construction projects and provided students
with the opportunity to develop skills that have lead many into apprenticeships and other careers in the industry.
Peter Photakis is the teacher who runs the program and he is assisted by a retired builder who comes into the
school and works with the students. It is anticipated that the program will continue to grow and attract students
from a number of schools in the region.

Reynella East High School
REHS initiated D2C in 2007. The school initially undertook to accept the overflow from the
Morphett Vale HS program. In a very short time it was clear a program could be sustained for
quite some time and as a result, some solid funding was put toward resources.

The program shares a shed with the Auto program and will be expanded to store tools and have
additional benches installed. Students are well versed in the requirements of the course and will
have a considerable amount of development in the south to sustain them.
Workplacements will be a minor issue with 3 other programs operating in the area (Woodcroft,
Morphett Vale and Tatachilla)

    2004 program overview

     Salisbury High School
Salisbury High School started a Doorways 2 Construction program in 2000 and has developed a successful
program over the last 4 years. The Salisbury High School / Northern Futures operate as a regional cluster D2C
program on Tues and Thurs, and young people from the following secondary schools are involved:

»   Salisbury High School
»   Smithfield Plains High School
»   Salisbury East High School




Working in partnership with Northern Futures and the Northern Adelaide Development Board the program also
caters for early school leavers who are experiencing unemployment.

The Salisbury High School / Northern Futures D2C program delivers an integrated program of on-the-job and off-
the-job training that includes practical and theory training sessions, work-based projects and 4 weeks of industry
work placements.

HousingSA supports the program and provide a house for the students to renovate for a 12-month period.
Students spend one full day a week at the Housing Trust house during which they are expected to behave and
perform tasks as they would in the work force. The training can be physically demanding yet it gives students a
real taste of life in the building and construction industry.

The renovations on the Housing Trust home undertaken by the D2C program ensure students are exposed to as
many different trades as possible – from carpentry, electrical, plumbing, bricklaying, tiling, painting etc. This
exposure helps each student to obtain theoretical and practical experience in various fields, and gives them the
experience to effectively choose their career path.

The Salisbury High School / Northern Futures D2C program successful continuation is due to the enthusiasm,
dedication and experience of the Program Coordinator – Richard Megaw, and Tradesperson – Jim Marron.

2004 Program Overview

           St John’s College

Students work on a local Housing Trust of South Australia house




The D2C program at Whyalla is one of our original programs, starting in 2000, and continues to develop and grow
with every year of operation. This program has developed a wide range of local industry partners who have
become involved in hosting students for workplacements, providing career advice and sponsorship for tools and
equipment. The new trailer has been sponsored by a number of local businesses including Career Employment
Group, Rapid Steel Fabrication and WEBD indicating the support the program enjoys locally.
The South Australian Housing Trust provides a house for the students to learn general building skills on while they
renovate it. Local builder Ken Juett who works for the SA Housing Trust oversees and assists the students in a
wide range of building activities working alongside Chris Lynch who is responsible for the practical training of the
program.
The program at Whyalla owes its success to the hard work of Damien Judd who has been able to organise all the
different aspects of training, workplacement and community support into a program achieving real outcomes for
students.

St Pauls College
St Pauls College is a new program for 2007. The College approached the CITB for
endorsement of a D2C program that was clearly a result of community interest and the
availability of staffing.
St Pauls has already produced a briefing paper outlining a strategy for those students looking
toward a career path in the industry. An agreement with Built Environs and Biancos formed
the foundation of plans to engage students in on-job training, workplacements and site visits.
Built Environs will allow access to their Northfield site on a regular basis.
There are 2 Trademen available to the teacher as mentors, both employed in other capacities
at the College.

 2004 Program Overview

 Southern Vocational College




The D2C program at Morphett Vale is a regional VET in schools program that is organised through Southern
Vocational College which is a collaboration between Aberfoyle Park High School, Christies Beach High School,
Hallett Cove High School, Morphett Vale High School, Reynella East High School, and Wirreanda High School.
The Southern Vocational College is an organisation that brings schools government, business, industry and the
community together across the region in the provision of Vocational Education and Training.
Secondary students from any of the above listed schools go to Morphett Vale High School on Mondays or
Wednesdays to take part in the D2C program.

Work placement forms an integral part of the program and each student completes 4 weeks work placement.
When students select their work placements they choose one or two weeks at a site that reflects their career
aspirations and Southern Futures help students find their work placements. Students are provided with a formal

Woodville High School
Woodville High School initiated the D2C program in 2007. This was largely due to the transferring of an ex-
Doorways teacher to the Woodville site.
Critical to the success of Doorways is the background of our delivers/teacher. Tim Lepley was a trades carpenter
for over 12yrs and began teaching as a career change. Tim was initially associated with the Smithfield program.

The Woodville program has , through the vision of the Principal, engaged in a partnership with Stocklands, a
Victorian company who have won the development tender for the Actil/Sheridan site at Woodville Gdns. This
happens to be directly across the road from the school.
The agreement with Stocklands includes long term access to the site, including demolition, site remediation then
onto civil works and eventually the construction phase. This should supply Woodville HS with workplacements,
visits, expertise and hopefully some uptake of work for the next 5yrs.

Stockland have also tendered for the Cheltenham site and believe their current work should help in that tender
submission. If this were the case, Woodville will have another long-term association from design phase to
construction for quite some time to come.
This is a genuinely exciting prospect for this western suburbs school. The variety and types of work available will
overwhelm this program and so it would be strategically wise to also involve those other schools in the Urban West
Management Group. This includes, Henley Beach, St. Michaels, and Ocean View College (which operates a Civil
program).
As Stock lands gear up for site development and are still in the remediation stage, Woodville have been asked to
construct floating pontoons for the Garden Island Yacht Club. This is currently happen with all materials supplied by
the club and some work pre-fabricated at he school.
