Growing construction careers and credentials

The growing construction sector offers a wide variety of career choices for people from all walks of life.

The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) invests in construction courses, programmes and apprenticeships to help build a diverse pool of talent with the skills to support a modern, productive industry.

To grow a diverse workforce the TEC is working with the construction industry to increase interest and change people's views on careers and jobs in the sector. The TEC increases awareness of careers and pathways in the construction sector through a dedicated information hub on their careers website.

To improve workforce capability and opportunities for skill development the TEC will facilitate the construction sector to explore and develop relevant micro-credentials – short stand-alone training tightly focused on a particular skills set.
