ACPET is the national industry association for the providers of private education and training – the choice of millions of students each year.

Private providers are popular for their;

  • Experience and commitment, where teaching staff tend to be industry professionals themselves
  • Security, with tuition assurance schemes in place
  • Flexibility of adaptable courses that respond to the latest industry developments
  • Focus on service, with student demands the number one priority

Not every private college is the same. ACPET members adhere to a strict Code of Ethics, and have access to the best professional development for their staff. To make sure you choose a high quality private college look for the ACPET logo.

Construct My Career is an initiative of the Construction & Property Services Industry Skills Council (CPSISC).

The Challenge

  • People’s perceptions of the construction and property services industries are outdated, narrow and erroneous.
  • There is an under-representation of women in building and construction, particularly at trades’ level, which exacerbates skill shortages.

Our Mission

  • To promote the construction and property services industries, and the careers that are on offer, to career advisers, young people and their parents/families, and people who are looking for a career change;
  • To encourage/advocate the employment of women in building and construction;
  • To be a point of contact in the construction and property services industries for anyone seeking career advice; and
