I am delighted to say that the CITB-ConstructionSkills Board has approved a further fund of a maximum of £10,000 for each Training Group/Training Forum to provide free training for their members from 1st July to 31st December 2012.
In October 2011, the CITB-ConstructionSkills Training Committee agreed a proposal to stimulate training in the industry by offering Training Groups/Training Forums up to £10,000 to provide free training for their members. This initiative proved to be very successful leading to the funding of over 700 courses on which approximately 7,000 candidates received training. More than 900 employers registered with CITB-ConstructionSkills benefitted from the training offered and were then, in turn, able to claim the attendance grant from the Grants Scheme Training Plan or Short Duration.
This means we will shortly be offering some heavily subsidised training again in the coming months. So check your emails for further details.
Ideas for training courses that will appeal to our members invited.
