Grants are now available for the achievement of approved short-period qualifications of core industry construction skills.

The grants are available for courses including NVQ and SVQ Levels 2 and above and National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety. Whilst individual achievements that form part of long-period qualifications or apprenticeships are not eligible, the qualifications can be delivered in several different ways including the following:

  • off-the-job
  • through on-site assessment (OSAT)
  • through experienced worker practical assessment (EWPA)
  • by distance and e-learning
  • outside conventional working hours (evenings or weekends)

If you’re registered with CITB and meet the eligibility requirements as well as a directly employed Pay As You Earn (PAYE) employee/subcontractor you’ll be able to claim £600 for each achievement, up to a maximum of 2 achievements at each level per individual.
