CITB-ConstructionSkills announces major change programme

CITB-ConstructionSkills announced last week the organisational changes that it hopes will ensure the successful delivery of the Sector Skills Agreement for construction.

Chief Executive, Peter Lobban, said: "Meeting our Sector Skills Agreement objectives offers us a once in a lifetime opportunity to instigate a massive step change in our delivery to the industry. For example, recruiting half a million qualified new entrants, qualifying a third of a million existing workers and increasing by 300 per cent companies with Training Plans or IiP.

"To respond to this challenge we are stepping up our plans for change starting with the realignment of our directorates and their accountabilities for delivery.

"We are committed to delivering an outstanding service to the industry that includes influencing government policy to maximise opportunities for construction, negotiating partnership and funding deals and providing high quality skills, services and products and services for the industry."

CITB-ConstructionSkills announced three major changes to the organisation:

* Paul Beatham, formerly Area Manager for Midlands, becomes Director of the CITB-ConstructionSkills Managing Agency, responsible for the CITB-ConstructionSkills Managing Agency with responsibility for increasing apprenticeship completions and ensuring apprenticeships are fit for purpose for the industry.

* Mike Bialyj, formerly the National Manager for Wales, becomes Director of Field with responsibility for promoting training, supporting customers and engaging stakeholders across the UK.

* All products and services supporting the Qualifying the Workforce (QWF) initiative have been brought together under Frazer Clement in the Business Services directorate.

According to CITB-ConstructionSkills, the next phase of change will see Directors and their teams reviewing Directorate structures by 1 September 2005. During this next phase there will be consultation with stakeholders, local employers and federations and further announcements as appropriate.
