Industry Training Advisors

Well-positioned knowledge to help students and school leavers forge a satisfying, rewarding career. Industry Training Advisors are experts in building and construction work and the best support to set you up for success.

When you learn from someone who has been there and done it, their advice carries more weight. Industry Training Advisors (ITAs) share their experience and connections in construction to assist you in finding the perfect role.

Along with practical experience and real-world knowledge, you can learn about working in the industry and how to get started. ITAs offer support to students, parents and teachers.

Our team provide the foundation for a successful future with industry intelligence on workforce needs, quality training and program delivery.

Support for Students

Need career advice?

ITAs help you learn what you should start doing now to become more employable later. You can get ahead in your career by obtaining your license and knowing what school subjects to focus on. They provide valuable early mentorship for your construction career.

We also support you through funded courses such as VET Programs, Try-A-Trade and the Scholarship program. An Industry Training Advisor will visit during these Programs to offer advice, discuss options and guide you on your pathway.

With ITAs, students:

✓ Gain in-demand job skills

✓ Receive the right support

✓ Have an educational, engaging and hands-on experience

✓ Unlock quality tips for working in the building and construction industry

Support for Teachers

Whether you’re a career practitioner, VET coordinator or teacher, you can connect with an ITA for qualified student support.

ITAs attend career expos such as Skills West and the Careers Expo, or expos hosted by individual schools. They deliver talks, facilitate programs and communicate with training providers and employers to ensure the best learning experience.

Benefits include:

✓ Shared knowledge with people who have had proficient experience

✓ Access to career expos and valuable resources

✓ Educational presentations and hands-on activities to understand various construction roles

✓ Book courses and register on behalf of your students

Support for Parents

Get to know the various pathways into and within the construction industry. Industry Training Advisors support parents with career advice, so you can discuss the right options with your child.

An ITA will also talk with employers about the incentives from the Construction Training Fund. CTF has expansive funding and stimuli that encourage employers to take on an apprentice. Your child can undertake a traineeship or pre-apprentice scholarship if they are at school or as a school leaver.

Our team supports parents, students and their employer for a successful and sustainable career in construction. Help them become part of an efficient, productive workforce.

Connect with:

✓ The latest industry intelligence on essential skills
