We are a statutory authority that began as the Building & Construction Industry Training Fund.

Construction Training Fund was established via the Building and Construction Industry Training and Levy Collection Act 1990 and started collecting the levy and distributing funds for training in 1991.

CTF is managed by a Board of industry representatives appointed by the Minister for Education and Training.

The Construction Training Fund Board also supervises the Construction Training Council, which works closely with industry stakeholders and provides advice to the State Government’s Department of Training and Workforce Development (DTWD) and State Training Board (STB) to ensure vocational education and training meets industry needs.

The Board delegates its day-to-day authority for running the Construction Training Fund to the CEO.
CTF, DTWD and STB have a memorandum of understanding, to be reviewed every two years, to share data and information, industry intelligence and advice.

The Board aspires to maintain a financially sustainable model to ensure WA’s building and construction industry has access to job-ready, skilled workers. CTF conducts an industry engagement plan each year, delivers quarterly reports to the STB on industry issues, makes annual submissions to the State Priority Occupation List, Western Australian Skilled Migration Occupation List and the State Training Plan Industry Profile.
