Construction Training Fund (CTF) supports the construction industry and the WA community through sponsorship of relevant training awards, activities and events that provide opportunities to communicate our vision that the construction industry is a career of choice and is safe, skilled and sustainable.
CTF’s sponsorship policy is designed to ensure every sponsorship we commit to aligns with our values, strategic initiatives and provides an opportunity to reach one or more of our key audience groups, and that all construction sectors receive sponsorship support from CTF.
If you are managing an event or initiative that will assist us in communicating our vision across a wide range of demographics and provides value for money via in-kind marketing benefits, find out more about or Sponsorship application process below.
Types of Sponsorship
Awards For Excellence
CTF acknowledges the outstanding commitment and achievements of WA construction apprentices, trainees and trainers by providing funding support to eligible organisations who hold events that reward award winners directly.
How exactly does Award for Excellence funding work?
Each organisation can apply for funding for up to 8 award categories, up to $500 each, which is then to be provided to the winner by the organisation as financial support from CTF. CTF will then provide a further 25% of the total awards amount to the organisation in funding for event costs and administration.
For example, an organisation may have 8 apprentice and trainee award categories at their event, with every winner to be awarded $500 each, meaning a total of $4000 in awards funding to be granted as prizing for winners. CTF would then provide an additional 25% of $4000 ($1000) for event running costs, making the total amount of funding provided to the organisation $5000 (+gst).
Our Awards for Excellence program supports events such as Apprentice Award Nights and Graduation events, usually run by Group Training Organisations, Registered Training Organisations and Membership Organisations. However, we encourage all eligible organisations to apply.
