Victorian apprentices are kicking goals and learning valuable skills on the $30 million re-development of St Kilda Football Club’s Moorabbin Reserve thanks to the Victorian Government’s Major Project Skills Guarantee.

Funded by the Victorian Government, St Kilda, the AFL, Kingston City Council and local sporting leagues, the re-development will include a training facility, indoor netball and basketball courts, the club’s headquarters and a retail hub.

The project has given 18 apprentices and one engineering cadet the opportunity to fine-tune their skills and gain valuable on-the-job experience.

Watch this video of the Minister for Industry and Employment Ben Carroll, St Kilda CEO Matt Finnis and senior players Josh Bruce and Sam Gilbert – both of whom are doing a carpentry apprenticeship – inspecting the works.
