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.

Applications for 2018 grants are now open.

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 can be made at any time but once the 15 have been awarded there's no more available until 2019.

What can the BCITO Employer Development Grant be used for?

Any training or development assistance which best suits your personal or business development needs.  Some examples are:

  • 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.
