Flexible and Structured Funds

Aim

This funding focuses on the most needed construction training areas chosen in consultation with construction companies in 2015. Our aim is to help build a skilled workforce that will boost the industry in the long-term.

This type of funding is for construction skills and training projects not supported by other CITB funding, like the grants scheme.

  • Flexible funding is for short projects, lasting up to 18 months.
  • Structured funding is for longer projects, lasting from 18 months to five years
