CITB make changes to how they fund training in response to feedback from customers

19/10/2015

To make it easier for you to choose the right funding for your business needs, they now offer three main funds:

  • Flexible Fund
  • Structured Fund
  • Grants Scheme.

They changed the funding system in this way to respond to feedback we gathered from employers during the Investment Funding Review in 2015.

Flexible Fund

  • For short-term programmes of up to 18 months. This Fund is designed for projects that are ‘quick and adaptable’ in meeting industry needs.
  • Provides up to £500,000 of funding.
  • Applications can be made quarterly.
  • Criteria for entry: innovation, pilots and prototypes, development of skills and training resources, and enhanced incentives.

Some Flexible funding projects could go onto Structured funding.

Structured Fund

  • For longer-term projects of 18 months to five years.
  • Provides up to £3 million of funding.
  • Applications can be made twice a year.
  • Criteria for entry: infrastructure, educational engagement and enhanced incentives.

Who can apply for Structured funding:

  • Levy-registered employers (individual or groups)
  • Construction industry federations (individual or multiple)
  • Trade unions associated with construction occupations
  • CITB-approved training groups.
