CITB Funding

CITB is the industry training board for the construction sector in England, Scotland, and Wales.

Are you in the construction industry?
Are you an employer who is registered with CITB?

If you’ve answered yes to the above, you could access and benefit from funded training for your employees.

There are now two ways to access funding for your employee training.

CITB Employer Network

The Employer Network Pilot is a new CITB initiative, trialling an alternative method of funding training in local or sector specific areas. All CITB registered employers – who are up to date with levy payments, or exempt, can take part and benefit from the funding available…and there’s no cost to join!

Employers decide how funds are used and how much of the funds contribute towards each training need. It also means that employers will no longer need to claim for training using the CITB grant scheme.

If you’re a construction company, you could benefit from the funding available. If you want to find out more about Employer Networks, please visit the CITB website or contact:

How it works

As an employer, you book the training via your local CITB Employer Network contact who then organises this with local training providers. This means there’s no forms to fill out to apply for the funding as CITB will do all of that for you. The Employer Network has a budget to spend on training and has the ability to partially or fully fund courses (including those that are not under the specific ‘grant-paid’ courses list).

CITB grants

The original CITB grant scheme is still available to construction industry employers who provide training for their employees.

Grants are accessible to employers of any size, regardless of whether they pay the CITB levy. However, it is imperative to ensure that your Levy Returns are current before submitting your application. This requirement applies to all employers seeking grants for their employees.

How it works

Grant rates are set for specific training courses including short courses. Once the training is completed the approved training provider (ATO) can input your completed course onto your CITB profile and claim the grant on your behalf, which gets paid directly to your organisation.
