As an Industry Training Board (ITB), the CITB is given powers to collect annual levy payments, with the money used to provide training grants and other services that support the UK construction industry.


If you are a construction business/employer based in Great Britain you should be registered with CITB.


Registering gives you access to funding and support services for skills and training.

Once your business is registered you will be required to complete an annual Levy Return, which will enable you to claim grants. Both Levy and Grant activities are easier and faster if carried out online.


You do not have to be an actual Levy payer to claim training grant support.


Fully Funded Training


CITB Training Grant support for NSITG


Over the last five years NSITG have been fortunate to receive additional training grant support totalling £85K in order to provide FREE training for companies in the natural stone sector.


The 2017 award is again £25K and companies are invited to bid for a share of this money. There are few restrictions as to how the money can be spent. Popular topics include H&S, SSSTS, SMSTS, PASMA, 1st Aid, Scaffold Safety, Abrasive Wheels and Marketing.


If you and your company operate in the natural stone sector and are registered with CITB why not email to request funding support.
