Getting businesses ready for future market demand.

Published On : 16 Oct 2019

Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) aims to support employers by making training more accessible for key skills required by industry now and into the future. They do this by subsidising a range of courses with established training partners such as Site Skills Training.

Check out some of the ways in which you can take advantage of CSQ funding to stay competitive in the construction industry:

Adapting your organisation’s capabilities through CSQ Funding

The construction industry in Queensland is changing. In 2018, building construction trade businesses reduced their head count by 23%, while heavy and civil construction businesses increased their workforce by 20%. This trend is forecast to continue due to the decline in the residential sector and increase in government spending on civil infrastructure projects.

Businesses need to ensure that their capabilities adapt to the new construction industry in Queensland. As an employer you can get your staff the skills that will help grow your business at a subsidised cost with CSQ Funding.

Develop your best employees through CSQ Funding

As the market becomes more competitive, developing your best employees becomes all the more important. From gaining new skills, to cross skilling, to getting advanced certifications, the work your employees do will directly affect the growth of your business.

Onsite training with CSQ Funding

Sending staff away for training isn’t always convenient, that’s why we offer CSQ funding for onsite training as well. Have our expert trainers come to your worksite and still have access to subsidised prices for those eligible for funding.

With limited funding available, get your employees the skills they require today. Check out a full list of courses that have funding right here.
