CITB response to Chancellor's Spending Review 2020


Steve Radley, CITB Policy Director, said: “The Chancellor’s commitment to a large increase in infrastructure spending next year and publication of the National Infrastructure Strategy give the construction industry greater confidence about the future work pipeline.

"It is now critical that the right skills and training interventions are put in place to help people benefit as a result of this investment and give the industry the skills it needs. 

“A new route from FE into industry, through the expanded construction Traineeship, reform of the Apprenticeship Levy and the prioritisation of construction skills in the Government’s National Skills Fund and new Levelling Up Fund will be essential in doing this.”
