Research & Development

The Construction Training Fund has an established Research and Development program that investigates industry training issues and needs.

The Research and Development program works in consultation with industry representatives to target issues and trends affecting training and their effects on labour and skill requirements.

As a result of collaboration with industry, the Construction Training Fund's Research and Development program has investigated and reported on priorities including:

  • Recruitment and retention of quality employees
  • Training quality
  • Skills training
  • Attrition of workers
  • Communication with industry

Research reports are tabled to the Building and Construction Industry Training Fund Board to inform the development of current and future Construction Training Fund programs to assist training and skills development within the building and construction industry.
