The fund provides a simple route into funds that can be used to provide direct investment to employers that are members of a Training Group. It is to help Training Groups support their members with their immediate core training requirements.
Who can apply for funding
Training Groups (TGs) who have not entered into a contract for their Skills and Training allocation are eligible to access £25,000 via this fund. Funds can be used to support TG members that are CITB registered and up to date with levy payments (notwithstanding the current levy arrangements).

The fund may be used to cover entirely or contribute to the cost of any Grant Eligible Training that is delivered between 1 August 2020 and 31 March 2021 (minus the Short Duration grant amount).
Please remember to keep evidence of all invoices and certificates as you will need to submit these to CITB to demonstrate that the training has taken place.
Reconciliation summaries of training delivered will be required throughout the delivery period.
