Growing construction careers and credentials

The growing construction sector offers a wide variety of career choices for people from all walks of life. To grow a diverse workforce the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) is working with the construction industry to increase interest and change people’s views on careers and jobs in the sector.

The TEC is increasing awareness of careers and pathways in the construction sector through a dedicated information hub on their careers website. The TEC is also working to help Group Training Schemes extend their reach and impact.

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.
