Empower your students to make career decisions

With over 70 roles in construction - many of these university-pathway careers suited to students with good analytical, mathematical or design skills – construction may match more students than you think.

4 reasons why your student should consider construction

For some students, the decision to work in construction is a no-brainer – especially if your student loves to work with their hands or be outside. Other students, however, may not have considered a career in construction due to traditional stereotyping of what construction work looks like.


High demand and job security

Construction skills mean high employability and job stability. With a growing pipeline of major infrastructure, Olympics and renewable projects on the horizon in Queensland, construction workers of all kinds are in high demand.

Career progression

Many successful leaders in construction started their careers on the tools. The construction industry rewards hard workers and ambition – there are lots of opportunities to quickly move up into management and specialist roles with funded training.

Financially rewarding

Construction can pay well – whether your student starts an apprenticeship to earn while they learn (instead of paying to study) or goes down a uni- pathway, there are opportunities to earn good money in construction.

Be your own boss

The construction sector creates plenty of opportunity to start your own business and working flexibility, which is a goal for many students.
