Employers have told us there are not enough clear routes from education to construction. Most have a limited understanding of the Apprenticeship Levy and T-Levels.
CITB’s report into Post-16 routes into construction found that:
- Only 22% of employers engage with colleges to support their recruitment needs, 26% to support their training needs. Half of employers who engage with further education colleges reported that they don’t collaborate on course content.
- The smaller the firm, the less likely they will offer college courses to their employees. Some 62% of respondents with 50+ employees offered FE or college courses within the last three years compared to 17% with fewer than 10 employees.
- The majority of employers said they have a limited understanding of the Apprenticeship Levy and T-Levels.
