Some highlights from this quarter are:

Aim: 4% increase in taster opportunities available

Progress: above target at 42%

We have seen a fantastic response to our taster programme from employers, learning providers and potential new entrants alike. Over 20,000 people have benefitted from taster experiences, with 7,000 sessions delivered in the last three months alone.

More than 18,000 in-person taster experiences were delivered, encompassing site visits, presentations, interactive career workshops, and the chance to explore cutting-edge machinery and technology.

Aim: 5% increase in CITB training support accessed by employers

Progress: above target at 11%

Over 25,000 employers have accessed our extensive training support offer, ranging from day-to-day short duration training courses to funding innovative largescale training programmes.

We’ve invested £112m to help train the workforce, almost half of which (£50m) is apprenticeship grants. Our other grants have also enjoyed strong take-up, with almost 7,000 employers benefiting from over £19m in short duration grants, receiving over £2,800 on average, and a further 2,100 receiving over £13m in qualification grants, representing a £6,000 grant per qualification.

Aim: 15% increase in people in sustained employment for three months through on site hubs

Progress: above target at 135%

Our Onsite Experience hubs increase the talent pool in England and Wales by linking together employers, training providers, local authorities, LEPs, community agencies and other partners, enabling the development and employment of site-ready people from local communities.

Almost 7,000 people have been successfully engaged by the hubs, with 4,700 of those becoming site-ready and available for immediate employment.
