Tailored to industry needs

CITB Construction Leadership & Management Training

Leadership and management are key skills for all construction sites and an area where the industry has identified a need for greater support and training. Acadame has worked with CITB to provide a range short course to support all employers.

ILM’s level 3 Leadership and Management Practice for the Construction and Built Environment Sector qualification and CITB’s Leadership and Management courses are designed to give frontline supervisors and managers the skills and increased confidence they need to carry out their roles effectively in areas such as, leading and organising their teams, handling difficult situations, and problem solving. By combining Acadame’s expertise in the construction industry with ILM’s market-leading leadership & management qualifications, this ensures the short courses teach best-in-class leadership & management skills and behaviours that are tailored to industry needs.

  • An increase in productivity
  • Reduction in the number of man hours on site
  • Leadership and management training contributing towards a safe working environment for all staff
  • The benefits of improved retention by offering training that supports employees long term career ambitions and continuous professional development

The CITB framework gives funding to all levy registered employers for standardised and transferable Leadership and Management training through a series of short courses.

This means that:

  • Employers can choose from a range of short courses that support their own managers and supervisors’ skills development
  • There are no long assignments as part of the training, minimising the amount of time the training takes to complete
  • For the first time, employers will be able to access short duration grant support for Leadership and Management training
  • There is flexibility of delivery – employers can find training providers who offer the courses in person or remotely
  • The new standards act as a guide for employers who are not sure what training would be useful for a supervisor
  • The courses can be used as personal development for someone not quite ready to move into a supervisory role but is part of their long-term career ambitions
