The Development of Building a Cadet Training Manual

Hancock, Jarred (2017) The Development of Building a Cadet Training Manual. [USQ Project]


This dissertation develops and analyses the process of developing a purposeful building cadet manual for the construction industry. In construction, there are numerous training programs that are in place. However, they vary from company to company and it is often difficult for the industry to define the capabilities that an employee requires to move onto the next phase in their career.

This Research Project aims to look into the way that a Building Cadet operates during a cadetship program and will investigate various ways that the course can be varied to appropriately suit the individual to benefit themselves & the industry the most. Through this investigation the aim is for the research material obtained to identify the most practical way to develop aspiring construction professionals through the Cadetship Program.

In particular this manual will be implemented into the Paynter Dixon, the organization which I am currently employed by and am completing my Cadetship with. Information will be obtained through looking at different approaches that can be implemented with the end goal to distribute the manual throughout the office to all Paynter Dixon Cadets.

The desired outcomes for this research project is that there will be an implemented structure that will develop Building Cadets within Paynter Dixon with the view of possibly breaking into the wider industry. In turn, this will mean that there will be enhanced professionals in construction which will help to progress the industry for the future.

The major benefits of undertaking this process is that there will be a benchmark for employees to reach in order to move into higher roles within the industry meaning that all developed cadets will have the ability and capabilities to works as a Contracts Administrator, Project Manager, Site Foreman etc.
