Over the past year, 37 Large Employers have been delivering their Leadership & Management Development programmes which have been funded through the CITB Leadership & Management Development fund. The purpose of these programmes is to:
- To provide support to large businesses to develop their managers, leaders and supervisors
- To develop strong evidence of which types of leadership and management training, or development activity to deliver the greatest impact. This will inform decisions about mainstream support (e.g. the grant scheme)
- To provide insight and information to other Construction employers, and enable them to deliver these programmes in-house by sharing the resources and materials developed through each funded project
By clicking on each Company, you will be provided with a summary of their funded project. As well as a downloadable file which includes the resources developed through the funded programme.
