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 are proud to be a part of the Simonds Group, which also consists of Simonds Homes – one of Australia’s largest domestic home builders.
Simonds Homes was established over 65 years ago by Gary Simonds, and from the humble beginnings of three completed homes in 1970, has grown to a publicly listed company and over 2000 completed homes in 2014.
House of Learning was initially set up as an internal training division to up-skill Simonds staff and subcontractors, then in late 2014 was re-branded as Builders Academy Australia and launched to the Australian public.
We have a wide-ranging student base which includes but is not limited to:
- Pre-apprentices and apprentices;
- Tradespeople wanting to start their own business or develop their skills;
- 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.
