Construction Training Grants

It may be possible for you to receive funding towards the cost of the course through the CITB Grants Scheme.

What is the Grant Scheme?

The CITB Grants Scheme supports all our registered employers to train their staff. This ensures that the appropriate skills are available to upskill workers and enable the industry to prosper, while maintaining the essentials, such as high health and safety standards on site.

CITB grants ensure the long-term growth of the industry by contributing towards the costs of training and development, and recognised qualifications. Our ambition is for the UK construction sector to become world-class; to be one of the most highly skilled, productive, safe and sustainable in the world. To do this we work hard to:
– reduce skills shortages
– improve business performance
– attract a diverse range of people to the industry
– improve learning on apprenticeships, and higher and further education
– develop professional occupational standards.

Who can claim?

All employers registered with CITB can claim a grant, even those that don’t pay levy, including..
-Pay as You Earn (PAYE) employees
-Your NET (taxed) Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) sub-contractors.
-Agency staff you use will also qualify for many of the grants.
