Employer development grants

Employers of current BCITO trainees can apply for funding for study programmes to help develop their business.

BCITO supports employers to go on and provide training and employment in the building and construction industry.

We have 15 Employer Development Grants up to a maximum of $3,000 each (excl GST) available for employers each year.

BCITO wishes to give employers access to study programmes which will help you develop and grow your business.

If you're currently training a BCITO apprentice, you're eligible to apply for this grant so that we can assist you to upskill yourself and help your business be successful long-term.

Applications have now closed for 2018, check back here early 2019 when this opportunity will once again be available. 

What can the BCITO Employer Development Grant be used for?

  • BCITO supervisory qualifications
  • Consultation with a business advisor
  • Short courses or seminars on small business management, estimating or contract management
  • Higher level business-related qualifications.
