CITB Skills & Training Fund

CITB logoAs a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO), we at HR Training can help you claim up to £10,000 of additional funding for construction training, courtesy of CITB’s Skills & Training Fund. And what’s even better, it’s in addition to your normal CITB Grants. As a matter of fact, you can claim your normal Grants on top of the training you complete with your £10,000!

What is the Skills & Training Fund?

The fund is a CITB incentive aimed at micro and small construction companies to encourage them to upskill their workforce. Employers registered with CITB that have up to 99 directly employed staff on their payroll can apply for funding once every 12 months. The funding can be spent on training that is covered by the CITB grant scheme.
