Special Project Funding

The promotion, marketing and sponsorship program support a number of industry events, education and training awards, and projects.

The aim is to promote the industry in a positive way to the general public by increasing awareness of the achievements of the industry and by supporting organisations within the industry that promote "best practice".

Along with the Authority's bi-monthly newsletter and website, supporting industry events to raise awareness of its role and services is a crucial element in providing access to training and funding for building and construction workers in the ACT.

The research and development program supports the development of new industry training programs, research for the Authority's Training Plan and special projects.

The aim is to assist organisations with funding to identify and address emerging issues affecting the training needs of the industry.

Funding is given for development of course and assessment resources where they do not currently exist. The Authority cannot provide funding for the development of resources for individual gain or profit and that are not beneficial for all stakeholders in the industry.

The access and equity program provides a number of funding initiatives that support the employment and training of both entry-level and existing workers of identified groups and people with special needs within the building and construction industry.

This includes people requiring literacy and numeracy training, women in non-traditional vocations, Indigenous Australians, people who have a disability or are from a non-English speaking background, or who are returning to the building and construction workforce after injury.
