The Construction Training Fund was established to support the training of eligible people in the building and construction industry to improve the quality of training and increase the number of skilled workers in the building and construction industry.
Under the Building and Construction Industry Training Fund and Levy Collection Act 1990, the Construction Training Fund collects a small training levy from all construction projects in Western Australia. The funds received from the collection of the training levy go back to the industry to support training and skills development.
The training levy ensures that people undertaking and paying for construction work in Western Australia make a contribution to training the skilled people needed to carry out the work. In this way, the whole community contributes to, and benefits from, the Construction Training Fund training levy and our funding programs.
