ConstructionSkills launches £114m grant scheme

CITB-ConstructionSkills has announced that a record £114million in grants is available for construction companies looking to develop their workforce.

Head of finance at CITB-ConstructionSkills, Douglas Matthews, said: "With demand for construction soaring and a huge range of projects underway throughout the UK, training has never been more vital. It's also not just for the big firms – recent figures have shown that not investing in training could cost smaller businesses £1,700 per year through materials errors, skills shortages and on-site accidents."

"With our company development advisers based across England, Scotland and Wales and £114million in grant support available, there's never been a better time to consider your firm's training needs and to make the most of the support on offer. It's good for your businesses reputation and it's good for industry as a whole."

CITB-ConstructionSkills says of the £114m available this year, grants to encourage firms to adopt a more systematic approach to training and developing their people have been increased in value, to reflect the fact that employers benefit from this longer term approach to training.

With a Training and Development Plan in place, CITB-ConstructionSkills says firms can claim grants for training in many disciplines that benefit their business, from construction-based programmes to computer skills, accountancy and customer service.
