School-based Programs

We have highly regarded programs and scholarships to help you get a head start in your career in building and construction.

Construction Training Fund offers funding and support for school-based programs including CTF Scholarships for Certificate II qualifications in Year 11 and 12 and our Try-a-Trade program for Year 9 and Year 10 students. These can get you started in a building and construction career while you get your WA Certificate of Education (WACE).
