Infrastructure Ready Skill Set Program

The Infrastructure Ready Program provides contractors with an opportunity to host students on work placements, with the possibility of future employment.

Published: 15 October 2020, Updated: 08 December 2020

A new initiative has been designed to create a sustainable civil construction industry and provide opportunities and pathways for the unemployed to be part of WA's major transport infrastructure boom. 

The Infrastructure Ready Skill Set program will develop a pipeline of 'job-ready' employees through a four-week training program. Participants will learn basic measurement and calculation skills relevant to construction, industry standard safety practices and the ability to operate small plant and equipment. It will also include a one week supervised work placement with a civil contractor, which may lead to a traineeship and further employment. 

If you're a jobseeker looking for employment opportunities, see what's available and express your interest.

If you are an employer or contractor looking to host participants, see how you can benefit from the program.
