CAMS – CAMS Mentoring FAQs

1. What is the CAMS Project?

The Construction Apprenticeship Mentoring Scheme (CAMS) is a comprehensive, nationally coordinated approach to supporting building and construction apprentices. It integrates online resources with one-on-one mentoring and pilots an innovative approach to supporting ‘out-of-trade’ apprentices.

2. How do I apply to receive mentoring?

Mentoring is available to any apprentice or trainee employed in the building and construction industry.  If you are interested in receiving free, quality mentoring through CAMS, please fill out the expression of interest form located on the CAMS webpage or contact the Apprenticeship Mentoring Officer on 02 8586 3555. Download the Apprentice opportunities form here.

Please return the completed form to the CAMS Apprenticeship Mentoring Officer by email to cams@mbansw.asn.au or by fax to 02 9660 0055.  An Apprenticeship Mentoring Officer will then make a time to meet with you and discuss what you would like to get out of being matched with a mentor.
