Our role in the construction industry

CITB is the Industry Training Board for the construction industry and a partner in ConstructionSkills, the Sector Skills Council  

We are the Industry Training Board and a partner in the Sector Skills Council for the construction industry in England, Scotland and Wales. It's our job to work with industry to encourage training, which helps build a safe, professional and fully qualified workforce.

The support and funding we provide helps companies to improve skills, increase their competitiveness and respond to challenges such as the low carbon agenda, reducing costs on site and recruiting the best talent for their sector.

We take a leadership role for the industry, addressing skills challenges through our strategic plan:

CITB Strategic Plan

The UK infrastructure plan, a housing boom and the importance of developing new ways of working and embracing new technologies, are combining to create a demand in construction for more skills, new skills and higher level skills.

We have consulted and listened to the industry to assess their priorities, locally, regionally, nationally, with the details of how we will address those issues laid out in our Strategic Plan 2015-2017.  

Working in partnership with other bodies and agencies for example CITB Northern Ireland, UKCES ensures that we lead and promote a world class innoative approach to developing a GB wide workforce.
