CITB is proud to be supporting UK Construction Week, taking place 3 - 5 October at the NEC in Birmingham.
Experienced construction workers have knowledge that can’t be found in books. And by becoming teachers, a key aim of the Construction Leadership Council’s new skills plan, older workers can equip new entrants with skills that help their career. Take Charlie Thorp, 66, a Construction Lecturer, Assessor and Mentor to bricklaying apprentices and Property Maintenance Operatives at South Essex College.
The Construction Industry Training board (CITB) is on the lookout for three new trustees to join its Board of non-executives. As a charity and Non-Departmental Public Body, CITB has supported the construction sector for over 50 years, helping to keep workers safe on site, supporting high quality training and giving young people a start in their career. CITB raises funds through an employer levy and works closely with employers and the Government to ensure national construction skills needs across Great Britain are met.
CITB is piloting changes across a series of plant training standards and grants, implemented from 31 July to help standardise plant training and testing requirements across the construction industry.

In this blog I will share recent facts on climate change. I will also outline how CITB is working with industry, Governments and training providers to serve the public on the most pressing issue of our time.
