Do You Work On, Or Tender for, State Government Construction Contracts?


The Department of Training and Workforce Development invites you to help shape Government policy.

The State Government is committed to providing more opportunities for construction apprentices and trainees by expanding Priority Start.

The Department of Training and Workforce Development is reviewing the current policy, the Government Building Training Policy, in line with the State Government’s Plan for Jobs election commitment.

The current policy requires State Government construction contractors to achieve a target training rate by employing apprentices and trainees. The policy applies to head contractors and subcontractors working on State Government construction projects with a labour value of over $2 million.

The Department is seeking feedback from contractors working on current contracts as well as those who tender, or plan to tender, for State Government construction contracts.
