Each year CITB-ConstructionSkills conducts a survey to measure the numbers of people entering construction training. Data is collected from colleges, private training providers and construction industry training centres across Great Britain. These include those coming through CITB-ConstructionSkills own managing agency and those entering other formal certificated training at craft and technical level. In all training for 17 different occupations is covered.
The results are used (together with separately sourced figures on higher-level construction courses) to compare with estimates of skill demand contained in the ConstructionSkills Foresight Report.
