Grants and Funding
CITB grants support employers who provide day to day training for their workforce.
Their grants contribute to the cost of training and qualifying your workforce in construction-related subjects across the following three categories:
CITB pay grants at three tiered rates. The tier is determined by the duration and content of the course:
- tier 1 is £60
- tier 2 is £140
- tier 3 is £240
CITB funding is avaialble to support training projects and this includes the Skills and Training Fund where companies can apply for funding up to £10K for skills and training for small- or micro-sized employers and up to £25k for medium-sized employers
YIRTG has an excellent track record for assisting companies to obtain Skills and Training Funding having assisted over 25 member companies to obtain funding which has delivered more than £250,000 worth of training to roofing companies in the Yorkshire and Humber Region.
The Industry Impact Fund is aimed at construction employers looking to make a positive difference to the construction industry by developing solutions to key challenges faced by the workforce across the UK.
The fund launched April 2023 and is the first fund of its kind for CITB. It will pilot a new way of supporting the needs of industry. The fund puts employers in the driving seat when it comes to designing and developing training and skills solutions.
Some regions support construction and the built environment as a priority sector and make further funding available for training - Leeds, Hull and Sheffield City Region all support construction, if a case can be made for specific training, so please contact us if you have training requirements, and we will assist where possible. Roofing companies have benefitted from regional funding to undertake NVQs, Site Safety Plus, and Plant Courses.
