A SELECT group of Maryborough State High Students is coming to grips with construction skills in a program giving them firsthand experience of life on a worksite.

The Doorways2Construction program, run by Construction Skills Queensland, offers the five Year 11 students work experience throughout Maryborough during the Easter school holidays as they work towards completing a Certificate I in Construction.

The program will provide them with 160 hours of structured workplace learning in the general construction industry during Years 11 and 12.

Mark Vincent, from Construction Skills Queensland, presented safety equipment worth $250 to the students.

The program is designed to attract new entrants to the general construction and civil construction industries.

The program will run for the school year.
