CITB Skills and Training Fund

What is the CITB Skills and Training Fund for?

The CITB Skills and Training Fund is a pot of funding that construction companies use to improve the skills of the construction industry. It helps to provide an improved talent pool for small construction companies via additional training.

Who can apply for funding?

To be eligible for funding you must be a CITB registered employer with 99 or fewer directly employed staff on your payroll. You can apply for funding once every 12 months.

How much can you apply for from the CITB Skills and Training Fund?

CITB registered employers can apply for funding, with the amount varying depending on how many direct employees they have:

  • 1 to 49 directly employed staff can receive up to £5,000.
  • 50 to 74 directly employed staff can receive up to £7,500.
  • 75 to 99 directly employed staff can receive up to £10,000.

What happens once I have applied for funding?

Once you have applied for your funding the CITB team will assess your application. They take around 4 weeks to make their decision. If your decision is declined you need to notify as soon as possible to .

Why has my funding been declined?

CITB may decline your funding request due to:

  • You asking for funding on a course that doesn’t relate to construction.
  • Your application does contain the required information.
  • You have not submitted a Levy Return.
  • You are behind on levy payments.
