Blackwoods has released the latest edition of its popular Trade Team 2012 brochure – packed with bonuses and great deals on some of the best tool brands in the country.

The 48-page brochure also gives apprentices the chance to win $15,000 worth of tools – $5,000 for themselves, $5000 for their TAFE or College and $5,000 for their employee. Apprentices simply register online at: www.blackwoodstradeteam.com.au.

In 40 words or less you must explain what you, your TAFE and your boss would do with the prize.

Many apprentices now qualify for TFYT (Tools for Your Trade) government funding.

This is designed to assist those starting out in their careers – with up to $5,500 on completion.

Trade Team offers some outstanding deals on tools to invest this funding with.

Check out: www.toolsforyourtrade.gov.org to see if you qualify.

And this year’s Free Buddy Products program is not only limited to apprentices.

It’s open to everyone who purchases a product that attracts a bonus free buddy product.

Simply register your details online and you will receive the buddy product free.

Blackwoods has worked hard to ensure the bonuses are relevant. For example, order a tool kit and redeem a tool trolley.

More than 105,000 copies of Trade Team are printed and distributed nationally.

You can order a copy by visiting: www.blackwoodstradeteam.com.au or www.blackwoods.com.au or contact your local branch tel: 137323.

 


So where does TFYT funding go?

Employers and TAFE colleges offer guidance on TFYT funding.

The TFYT payment was changed from a voucher system to direct payment into the apprentice’s bank accounts about two years ago. Many employers were concerned that apprentices could spend the funds in other areas and not invest in trade tools that could set them up for life.

Some employers and training companies now give apprentices preferences on where funding should be spent.

Increased diligence in this area is the key to guiding young trades’ people on their career path – particularly in deciding the type of tools to buy.

Taking an interest in your apprentice’s TFYT spending can both strengthen your relationship and offer an opportunity to provide some guidance on how to invest this funding.

Like most other products, it is important to invest in known brands like Sidchrome, JBS, Bosch and Hitachi from a long-term established distribution network like Blackwood’s.
