Sector Skills Agreement
ConstructionSkills is a partnership between CITB, The Construction Industry Council (CIC) and CITB Northern Ireland
We are committed to working together and with our industry, to deliver industry-led skills and training solutions through the Sector Skills Agreement for construction (SSA).
We aim to provide a coordinated sector-based approach to skills, giving the industry one voice on its training needs.
We negotiate the best partnership and funding deals for the construction industry, help raise standards and develop the skills products and services employers need.
The Construction Industry Council
The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is the umbrella body for all professional services (such as architects and surveyors), research organisations and specialist trade associations. It represents more than 450,000 professionals and over 23,500 firms.
CITB Northern Ireland
CITB Northern Ireland, like CITB, is a statutory body with levy raising powers. CITB provides CITB Northern Ireland with opportunities to develop new entrant recruitment for both crafts and professions, and to share best practice.
CITB helps the industry in England, Scotland and Wales in all aspects of recruiting, training and qualifying the construction workforce. We also work with partners in government and industry to improve the competitiveness of the construction industry as a whole.
