With the help of our team of professionals here at Acadame, harnessing the benefits of CITB Grants and Funding is a seamless journey. As a CITB Site Safety Plus centre, we provide an array of construction training. From NVQs to CSCS cards. We not only aid in claim submissions but also guide businesses on optimizing these grants. In this blog we’ll take a look at the different kinds of funding our team can help you access for your workforce.
At the forefront of CITB’s initiatives is the flagship Skills and Training Fund, designed for micro, small, and medium-sized construction enterprises with up to 250 employees. This fund consists of financial support reaching up to £25,000, specifically for leadership and management training.
CITB’s Short Course Grants focus on approved short qualifications in core construction skills. These efficient courses, often completed within a year, encompass vital skills essential to the industry, with funding up to £240 based on course length and content. These grants financially support employers to develop a well-educated and safe workforce.
As the construction industry moves from Industry Accreditation (IA) cards to recognized qualifications like NVQs, CITB rises to the occasion with Short Qualification Grants. This funding provides essential financial aid for an array of NVQs, with grants up to £1,500. Whether it’s skilled qualification NVQs at Level 2 and Level 3 or utilising these grants alongside the Skills & Training Fund, there are many different opportunities. From bricklaying to carpentry, glasswork to plastering, CITB funds can help workers progress their careers in a range of sectors.
