Skills and workforce development

The Queensland Civil Infrastructure Industry - measuring the scale and nature of the current workforce 2007

Client:  Construction Training Queensland

In late 2006, Construction Training Queensland gathered information on planned civil infrastructure projects to be undertaken in Queensland over the next five years. The WRC was commissioned to ascertain with precision what the skills and occupations of the current workforce were, and immediate challenges concerning skills in the industry today. A highly refined survey instrument was devised and the questionnaire was circulated in electronic form throughout the industry. The report draws attention to key issues regarding recruitment and skills shortages.
