CITB is responsible for helping to develop and maintain standards and qualifications in the construction industry. There are many providers of training in construction. How do you know that your training course is good enough? CITB wants to help ensure that the training you or your employees receive is delivered and assessed to a recognised standard.
This is part of a wider reform CITB is undertaking to increase the standardisation and transferability of training in the UK Construction Industry, which will improve the benefit of funded training to employers and individuals. This will enable CITB to target funding on the training areas of most impact and importance to the construction industry and reduce wasted effort and spend on duplicated training of the employee.
We are consulting with industry stakeholders to provide Training Standards, for many categories of training carried out in the construction industry. When these are confirmed, training providers can then match their courses to the Standard and can register on the Training Directory, employers can be certain that their employees have received comprehensive training, and workers can transfer their course training between employers.
Update 6 December 2017
We have opened a second consultation window for another 83 Training Standards. This consultation window will stay open until 31 January. Please view the draft standards and give us your feedback. When we've collated your feedback we'll publish the approved standards together with other short duration courses.
