Funding Options Available

CSQ Short Course Program 2020-21

Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) offers Short Course funding to assist with upskilling and cross-skilling existing workers in the building and construction industry.

The training focuses on the safety, regulatory and licensing requirements of the industry and can provide you with a range of competencies that employers need. These courses are designed to get you upskilled fast.

CSQ Apprentice Advance+ Program 2020-21

The Apprentice Advance+ program provides funding to assist with upskilling and cross-skilling existing workers. It’s designed for workers that are active apprentices or trainees in the building and construction industry.

The Apprentice Advance+ program offers funding for various Certificate III courses.

CSQ Skills Assessment and Gap Training

Experience counts, particularly when it’s formally recognised. If members of your general or civil construction workforce have learnt their skills on the job but don’t hold a formal qualification, Skills Assessment and Gap Training (SAGT) could be the answer.

The first stage of SAGT will see your worker’s skills and abilities ‘mapped’ against a nationally recognised qualification. They will then go on to undertake gap training required to gain a nationally-recognised qualification.

Queensland Government Subsidised Traineeships

The Queensland Government provides targeted investment through a number of different vocational education and training (VET) investment programs to assist industry and employers train and upskill their current and future workforce.

BERT Training Fund

The BERT Training Fund (BTF) is a joint Union and Employer initiative which provides members of the Building Employees Redundancy Trust (BERT) with funding and assistance to improve their skills.

The fund which was previously known as the Queensland Construction Training Fund (QCTF) was established in 1991 to enable the industry to take responsibility for the funding of its training needs.
