Attracting Apprentices to Construction

The construction industry is the largest industry in Western Australia and employs tens of thousands of people but attracting new people to the industry is a challenge faced around the country.

One way that the state aims to attract and train skilled workers is through the Construction Training Fund (CTF). The fund was established in 1990 and has sinced helped 48,000 apprentices and trainees and over 340,000 industry workers upgrade their skills.

The CTF recently announced a $4000 incentive to further drive recruitment and training of construction apprentices in collaboration with the Housing Industry Association (HIA).

Remember everyone who enters the construction site for work must complete general construction induction training known as The White Card course to ensure they know how to ‘Work Safely in The Construction Industry’.
