Since launching in 2018, CITB has awarded £25.5 million through the Structured fund for commissioned projects.
- We have commissioned 77 projects under our three priorities: careers, training and development, and innovation.
- 27 projects have been careers commissions, accounting for £14.9 million funding
- 37 training and development projects, accounting for £5.7 million funding
- 13 innovation projects, accounting for £4.9 million funding.
Projects have spanned a broad range of themes including: training for ex-offenders, career changers, pathways into construction, immersive learning and assessment infrastructure.
The benefits for a company receiving CITB commissioned project funds reach further outside their own workforce. Projects can make a real difference to the industry as a whole, for example:
Career changers: women into construction
“We are excited to be spearheading such a valuable project. We want to make the construction industry accessible and attractive for all. This project works from the grassroots through to the top of the chain to implement a solution that is innovative, affordable, sustainable and impactful.”
