CITB inform industry of Grant Reform changes

CITB has begun to inform industry on the changes that will be made to the Grant Scheme in 2017 and from 1st April 2018.  For 2017 this includes a continuation of grant support for apprenticeships and the introduction of grants for Higher Apprenticeships from September 2017.  The biggest changes will impact industry from 1 April 2018 with the Reforms focusing on grants to support industry to train the workforce in the skills and knowledge the industry needs;    focus on Apprenticeships, Vocational Qualifications and short duration courses that have a defined outcome and are widely beneficial to the construction industry;    provide grant support for training that leads to a defined outcome, rather than paying out for attendance.   The grant year will be changed to start on 1st April and finish on 31st March each year.

Full information on the changes can be found on the CITB website – Update on grants scheme  or for information on the current grants available visit Grants for Training
