Construction Training Fund

School to Work Transition


The CTF Schools2Skills program offers a range of school-based initiatives to help WA school students along their pathway into a construction career.

The Try-A-Trade¹ program provides young people with a hands-on insight into some of the building trades. The CTF fully funds a range of Registered Training Organisations in metropolitan and regional areas to facilitate the Try-a-Trade program.

Try-A-Trade is a great pathway for students into a Certificate II Building and Construction qualification as part of their WACE studies for Year 11 & 12. Schools or RTOs enrolling students in a relevant WACE Certificate II qualification can apply to the CTF for funding to reduce costs associated with safety equipment to assist students in their work placement.

For more information on the One Industry - No Limits or the Schools2Skills program operated by the CTF call (08) 9244 0100 or email


A scholarship of $250 will be paid to students who successfully complete a Certificate II building and construction qualification as part of their WACE or who successfully complete a recognised pre-apprenticeship qualification in an approved building and construction trade through full-time enrolment with a registered training provider.

Applicants can complete an online claim to receive the scholarship, and upload a copy of their certificate.
