The new Institute of Applied Technology – Construction has opened enrolments for 11 courses.
The Institute, in New South Wales, is a partnership between TAFE NSW, CPB Contractors, and Western Sydney University which together are co-designing and delivering the skills training.
The courses will provide construction workers with the skills that are currently in high demand in areas such as:
- Contract management
- Project management
- Digital skills in construction
- Sustainability, Work Health and Safety
Don Johnson, CPB Contractors Chief Operating Officer, said: “CPB Contractors is very proud to be developing these courses with TAFE NSW and the University of Western Sydney. Our commitment to training and skills formation is longstanding and is central to lifting the construction sector’s efficiency and productivity.”
“CPB Contractors’ involvement will ensure that the courses quickly and directly address skills gaps that emerge in the construction industry.”
“As a leader in construction, CPB Contractors wants to create a skills legacy that will benefit individual workers while also supporting the sustainability of the industry.”
“Australia’s construction workforce is expected to grow by another 66,000 workers by 2026, including over 11,000 construction managers, so investing in skills and training is essential to our long-term success.”
The Institute of Applied Technology – Construction will be based at TAFE NSW Nepean – Kingswood and is scheduled to open later in 2023.
