The role of the Industry Advisory Forum is to provide CITB with a robust and representative voice of industry to advise, recommend and inform training courses which are eligible for grant ahead of the launch of the new Grants Scheme in April 2018.
The usefulness of this group will be reviewed after April 2018 with strong governance put in place.
Industry membership is drawn from the full range of construction industry federations reflecting differing sectors, size and geographical areas. See the full list of members.
The Industry Advisory Forum exists to represent industry interests and ensure that the Short Duration training identified as eligible for grant support is beneficial to the Construction industry as a whole.
It also has responsibility to assist CITB to determine which training courses are grant eligible and to ensure that the training courses selected are aligned to the guiding principles and target industry outcomes.
This forum will meet three times before 1 April 2018 – the launch of the reformed Grants Scheme
- September 2017 – meeting has taken place
- December 2017
- March 2018
As well as face-to-face meetings, those Federations who cannot attend are given the opportunity to provide their input digitally.
