10 Percent Training Policy
The policy requires that a minimum of 10 percent of the total labour hours on any Queensland Government building or civil construction project (valued over $250,000 for building or $500,000 for civil construction) must be undertaken by Indigenous workers, apprentices, trainees or cadets or used for the upskilling of existing employees (to a maximum of 25 percent of the deemed hours).
The 10 Percent Training Policy plays a key role in ensuring the building and construction industry continues to employ apprentices and trainees and upskill its existing workforce.
The policy requires contractors to ensure employment and structured training occurs on State Government building and construction contracts to address skills shortages and create additional employment opportunities in the building and construction industry.
