New Entrant Support Team

Contact NEST today

Our role in the New Entrant Support Team is to work with employers to remove the barriers they face employing and retaining new entrants, particularly apprentices.

Your local CITB New Entrant team (NEST) are here to help every step of the way:


We’ll signpost you to useful employment resources and help advertise your apprenticeship vacancy on Talentview to attract potential candidates and let them find you – all for free. We’ll help you get the right apprentice.

CITB Funding

We’ll make sure you’re set up to receive CITB apprenticeship grants:
• Attendance grant: £2,500 (per year, per apprentice)
• Achievement grant: £3,500 (on successful completion of the apprenticeship).


We’ll help you sort the paperwork, liaise with the training provider, set up your Government Digital Account and more so you can focus on the job.


We’ll keep in touch to make sure you have the support you need to help your apprentice achieve and become a fully-fledged employee on completion.
