About CITB research

Research from CITB provides targeted and useful labour market intelligence that benefits the UK construction industry

Our research needs are determined by our roles as a Sector Skills Council and an Industry Training Board. We also take into account economic drivers, immediate and emerging policy issues and industry skills challenges. 

To meet these needs, our research process includes: 

  • Continuous labour market intelligence
  • Analysis of industry change – economic, demographic and technological
  • Forecasting labour and skills requirements
  • Bespoke primary research
  • Evaluation work

Working with other Sector Skills Councils, and the Alliance of Sector Skills Councils, enables us to connect our skills needs assessments and sector specific work to the economy wide agenda. 

Working with the Alliance’s Intelligence Network also enables us to stay up-to-date with leading research.

  • Grant Modernisation - Employer Consultation
  • Local Enterprise Planning Snapshots
  • Training & the Built Environment
