Indigenous program

It is now 15 years since the PPTEU began a partnership with Western Australian, Northern Territory and Victorian Aboriginal communities.

This partnership came together with the joint aims of improving sanitation standards within Indigenous communities and increasing the job and training prospects of young Indigenous men and women.

The Apprenticeship arm of the PPTEU Indigenous Program has been up and running since 2004 with over 30 indigenous plumbing apprentices involved in the scheme. Out of the first six apprentices to begin, all have completed their four year apprenticeship.

We are now in the very privileged position of seeing this project come full circle, with fully qualified male and female indigenous plumbers working in rural and remote communities, helping to improve sanitation and living standards.
