Construction Training Fund

Construction Training Fund is creating a skilled and sustainable workforce for the Western Australian building and construction industry. We collect a training levy and use it to reduce the cost of training a diverse, job-ready workforce and educate the next generation about the variety of exciting roles and opportunities on offer in our industry.

Apprentice Tool Allowance

CTF has introduced the Apprentice Tool Allowance (ATA).  The program will provide eligible apprentices and trainees with a rebate of $500 for the purchase of relevant tools and/or safety equipment that is required for the apprentice’s on-the-job work.

The $4.5million Program launched on 1 July 2022 for one year and will provide eligible construction apprentices and trainees with a rebate of $500 for the purchase of relevant tools and/or safety equipment that is required for the apprentice’s on-the-job work.

Employers, working in the affected regions can claim a grant of up to $6,000, with an extra $2,000 available to apprentices and trainees. We also offer a rebate of up to $2,000 on short courses recognised in the current Upskilling and Short Course Funding Program to eligible workers.
