Training Provider Summary

Here at Builders Academy Australia we live and breathe building and construction. We intimately understand the industry and have strong relationships within the building and construction community and the education sector.

Through these established connections, we are able to deliver qualifications that provide real-world skills. Our graduates leave the academy with a stronger network and the confidence to take the next step in their career.

Builders Academy Australia (BAA) is a learning organisation that offers nationally accredited qualifications for the building and construction industry.

Our qualifications range from pre-apprenticeships up to Diploma level and cover trades such as carpentry, plumbing, work health and safety and building and construction.

We have a wide-ranging student base which includes but is not limited to:

  1. Pre-apprentices and apprentices;
  2. Tradespeople wanting to start their own business or develop their skills;
  3. Non-tradespeople who work within the building and construction industry.

We cater for both individuals wanting to develop their skills and employers wanting to develop the skills of their staff.


BAA was originally founded by the Simonds Group which includes Simonds Homes, one of Australia’s largest builders of detached housing in Australia. This allowed BAA great insight into employee and Industry focused educational delivery with an emphasis on the importance of meeting Industry needs. Building homes since 1949, Simonds Homes celebrates a heritage that is celebrated and trusted by Australian families and Industry.

In December 2021, the ownership of BAA changed yet a strong strategic relationship with Simonds Homes remains. Simonds Homes is one of many strategic partners that BAA work closely with.


For over 25 years, UP Education has built an innovative, student-centred global learning community.
