The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is the Sector Skills Council and Industry Training Board for the construction industry. It works with construction companies to improve skills, increase competitive edge and respond to the many challenges employers face.

CITB provides support for registered employers undertaking training and aims to raise the level and quality of training for the construction workforce, for people joining the sector as apprentices, technicians or graduates and for experienced workers improving their skills and qualifications.


We believe that better trained and qualified people deliver better results and make the companies they work for more competitive and more productive. More than this, a better skilled construction workforce can help create a better quality built environment that benefits the public at large.


We support employers in two main ways:

  • by giving grants that help offset the costs employers incur in training their workforce, and which recognise (for example) gaining a qualification or participating in a training event
  • by providing or funding training facilities and services used by employers, either on our own or in partnership with others. These include:

˙ Helping employers develop national occupational standards for construction skills

˙ Offering qualifications to recognise the achievement of standards

˙ Supporting apprentices and employers while they complete Apprenticeship frameworks

˙ Supplying the industry-standard health, safety and environment test

˙ Administering schemes that record individual qualifications and competence

˙ Advising employers on skills and training needs and offering specialist facilities

˙ Researching and analysing skills needs for now and in the future
