CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO)Overview

The cost of training can be an issue. But for any employers paying the construction industry training levy, then the new system has been designed to help ensure that the construction industry can invest in the skilled workforce it needs, whilst drawing on all available CITB funding. Smaller employers and self-employed individuals who do not pay the levy needn’t fear being left out, either. You can also apply for a grant – you just need to meet the requirements set out by the CITB and register your company with the CITB before making an application.
