The building sector is the largest employer of Australians with more than 1.4 million jobs, and the training of 50,000 apprentices each year*, and is of vital importance to the nation’s social and economic prosperity.

Our Education & Training strategy addresses current skill shortages, demographic change from a retiring workforce, and new skills demanded by this digital age, preparing for and leading sector-wide change.

Our industry-led programs will forge strong partnerships between VET, universities and industry partners, delivering the next generation of highly-skilled and innovative building professionals and transforming the culture of construction together.

We will soon be commencing the graduate education programs with our university partners, and the skills and training initiatives with our VET partner, Holmesglen Institute.
