We have invited bids for projects to create a model of local, onsite training to help address the complex challenges facing the construction industry in rural Scotland. This opportunity is now closed for new bids.
CITB will invest £5.4 million in Scotland over a three-year period, specifically within Highlands and Islands, Borders and rural East Scotland. The fund will target further education students studying construction, where currently only a low percentage go on to employment in the sector.
During this period, CITB will establish at least three onsite hubs and train 4,500 individuals, 30 per cent of whom are expected to be offered employment in the sector.
