Careers in civil and general construction

Vocational Education and Training courses can help you become part of fast-growing and well-paying industries like civil construction and general construction.

Why construction?

The construction industry is booming. Over the next decade it’s predicted that 300,000 more workers will be in demand around Australia.

In NSW, the government’s $87.2 billion (2017-2021) building program on infrastructure will see thousands of job opportunities emerge across the state. Those jobs will require workers trained in skills that VET can help you learn.

There’s never been a better time to start — or supercharge — your career in construction.

VET a good choice

VET is a proven pathway to learning about many diverse roles, including the construction industry. They include trade apprenticeships and traineeships, roles in finance, telecommunications, human resources and more.

VET also brings the opportunity to earn salaries of more than $75,000 a year. And with apprenticeships now being fee-free in NSW, you can start your VET studies debt-free.
