Abstract The construction industry is a field with the largest number of workers among single industries, but various problems such as lack of employment safety, inadequate skilled expertise, decline in labor productivity, and the generalization of apprenticeship education are occurring. Despite the government introducing various systems to strengthen wage guarantees, improve the working environment, and secure skilled workers, the lack of education and training institutions to foster construction workers is a recurring issue. It is urgent to improve the professionalism of construction workers, and the working environment for field work employees. In this study, the advanced programs of construction skill education facilities were identified through the study of legal systems, related policies, similar case reviews, and interviews were conducted about practical demand and essential education programs. As a result, the lack of expertise and fieldwork was derived as the biggest issues regarding domestic construction skill education. However, public-private cooperation, public-led, and private-led educational programs were found to have high expertise, signifying that the operation of facilities in the form of public-private cooperation is most suitable to ensure stable operation. In the future, further research should be conducted in various fields to derive detailed curriculum and operation plans to improve productivity and job structure of the construction industry in the long run.
