The ACT Building and Construction Industry Training Fund Authority provides funding to train eligible workers. The Authority aims to:

  • develop skills that are in short supply within the ACT building and construction industry
  • improve the culture, level and access to training for workers in the industry
  • support the entry of new workers into the industry.

A number of different funding grants are available through the Authority.

Eligibility criteria

The eligibility criteria differ depending on the grant you are applying for. Employees, apprentices, employers, group training organisations (GTOs), industry bodies and associations, and registered training organisations (RTOs) can apply for funding. An eligible person is any person usually working in, or in connection with, the building and construction industry in the ACT who is substantially (at least 80%) performing work liable for the training levy.
