LearningLINK, an online module training is very helpful
Graduate, Sydney
Through the graduate program there was a structured learning program involving full-day and multiple-day courses on negotiation, presentation, personal brand and finance. They were provided by an external party and tailored to our company. All courses were valuable and offered a new perspective.

Mental health training/site specific training
Graduate, Brisbane
Sporadic training, would like a bit more to happen. Have done safety training on cranes, scaffold, and various mental health things.
Graduate, Port Macquarie
Since beginning with the company I have completed my formal induction, along with an induction to a mine site (as part of a project) but have not received any formal training otherwise.
Graduate, Newcastle
There are array of programs available. Most of these are short courses and therefore not all the information "sticks". It is always good to get the opportunity to learn new content and skills and the company gives plenty of opportunities to do this i.e. presentation skills, influencing skills, finance / excel refreshers.

Formal training has been great. Get paid for the time, can sign up for additional training - however you are running projects and will have to catch up on the work at sometime
Graduate, Melbourne
The graduate course has a range of compulsory training that must be completed over the two year period. These include time management, site specific issues, software use, etc. I picked up good productivity skills from one course.
Graduate, Sydney
There are many training programs for graduates including the CiDD waterproofing and fire workshop as well as the construction planning workshops that run over a couple of months. I now understand about the design requirements for waterproofing and fire.
Graduate, Adelaide
There are multiple courses, both compulsory and non compulsory. Each help you learn different skills. The company really does care about learning and development.
Graduate, Perth
Amazing training opportunities.
Graduate, Brisbane
The company offers a range of training courses and it is encouraged that graduates make use of these. Managers are reluctant to approve however as these courses get charged back to the project (when the project is working to a profit margin already).
Graduate, Brisbane
Some is very helpful, others are a little irrelevant
Graduate, Melbourne
Grad training has been disorganised but good quality when it does happen. Every second RDO (every month), the whole building company is encouraged to attend a training session of some sort eg. technical fire training, cultural awareness training, audit training.
Graduate, Melbourne

Lendlease training is one of the best aspect of the company, the graduate program has a large program of compulsory and optional courses that are very useful to my role. Attendance of these courses is supported 100% by the company.
Graduate, Newcastle
Lots of opportunities available.
Graduate, Melbourne
Training is provided by the graduate whom you are replacing the role of. As graduates we were provided a training schedule with formal training in financial modelling and other various technical skills - but so far none of this has been addressed and it's been nearly 6 months.
Graduate, Sydney
Minimal training offered to engineers.
Graduate, Port Macquarie
All the graduates get training, and we have plenty of site-wide training too. I would like the option for more technical training related to my role.
Graduate, Sydney
There are a number of online training modules which don't provide much additional information and it is hard to find the time to complete them. the in person training sessions have been useful so far
Graduate, Melbourne
Software training and support provided. Continual professional development provided via graduate program requirements.
