Grants and funding
We offer support to industry through our grants and funds. CITB grants cover day to day training and our funds cover specific projects and commissions.
Grants: Our grants support employers who provide day to day training for their workforce. They contribute to the cost of training and qualifying your workforce in construction-related subjects across the following three categories: Short course grants, Qualification grants and Apprenticeships.
Funds: We provide funding for specific training projects relating to construction skills development of employees within the construction industry. If you can provide us with a plan for your training needs for the year ahead, or have an idea how to increase performance through improved leadership and management skills we might be able to help through our Skills and Training fund.
