Holmesglen has been offering civil solutions to industry for over 30 years and more recently our civil footprint has expanded across the state to support our growing client base in both metro and regional locations. Our focus over the past four years specifically, has been on designing and refining a highly tailored and quality assured solution for industry, using the principles of 70:20:10 delivery and offering a range of pathway programs for new entrants and existing workers.
The 70:20:10 Framework is a learning and development reference model which captures the three types of learning - experiential, social and formal (structured).

  • The 70 - Experiential/Experience - learning and developing through day-to-day tasks, challenges and practice
  • The 20 - Social/Exposure - learning and developing with and through others from coaching, exploiting personal networks and other collaborative and co-operative actions
  • The 10 - Formal/Education - learning and developing through structured courses and programs

Holmesglen offers a clear pathway for training, with pre-apprentice and apprenticeship programs helping form your skills and knowledge. There is also a multitude of programs available, ranging from short courses and individual units to skillsets and qualifications at trade and para-professional level. This learning is supported by a hands-on focus, which includes work with hand and power tools, elevated work platforms, pipe laying and concreting.

Whether you want to work in a management, supervisor or operations role within the civil construction field, a qualification provides the grounding to achieve your desired occupation.
