As of the beginning of this year, at least 10 per cent of the workforce involved in major government funded projects will have to be made up of apprentices and trainees.

Government construction projects including Melbourne Metro Rail will have at least 10 per cent of its workforce consisting of engineering cadets, apprentices or trainees as part of a new requirement which came into effect on January 1.

The Major Projects Skills Guarantee applies to all major projects over $20 million which are funded completely or in part by the Victorian government.

There’s never been a better time for young people in the state to get into a career in construction but they will have to get a white card first. The White Card is the mandatory general safety training required for all construction workers in Australia.
