The Building and Construction Industry Training Fund and Levy Collection Act 1990 (the Act) stipulates that a review shall be carried out on the operation and effectiveness of the Act.

The Review will consider and have regard to the following:

  • the effectiveness of the Board
  • the attainment of the objects of the Act
  • the need for the Act to continue in operation; and
  • any other matters that appear to the Minister to be relevant

The following questionnaire has been developed which has the objective of collecting information/data from stakeholders on their interaction with and the associated performance of the Construction Training Fund.

Review of the BCITF & Levy Collection Act 1990 – Online Questionnaire

A key output of the consultation with stakeholders is the development of a report for the Industry representative group appointed by the Minister for Training and Workforce Development to conduct the independent review. The report will include insight into current issues within the construction training field and the perceived performance of the Construction Training Fund.

Should you wish to take part in the review and participate in the questionnaire, please ensure your responses are completed by no later than 22 April, 2014.

Thank you.

The Construction Training Fund was established in 1990 by an Act of Parliament to support the training of eligible people in the building and construction industry. Our goals are to improve the quality of training and increase the number of skilled workers in the building and construction industry.

Under the Building and Construction Industry Training Fund and Levy Collection Act 1990, the Construction Training Fund collects a small training levy from all construction projects in Western Australia. The funds received from the collection of the training levy go back to the industry to support training and skills development.

The training levy ensures that people undertaking and paying for construction work in Western Australia make a contribution to training the skilled people needed to carry out the work. In this way, the whole community contributes to, and benefits from, the Construction Training Fund training levy and our funding programs.

Since its inception, the Construction Training Fund has supported the training and employment of more than 40,000 apprentices and trainees and has helped over 300,000 industry workers to upgrade their skills.
