As an industry training board (ITB), CITB is asked by the Secretary of State to show that it has continued support from the construction industry every three years – this is knowns as Consensus. With Consensus achieved, the Government can then authorise CITB to collect a construction levy from employers and invest it in the training that the industry needs.
Whilst a significant majority of members supported the continuation of the Levy, Build UK (of which RIDBA is a member) has made it clear in their letter to CITB that this support is subject to the implementation of a clear reform programme.
CITB is therefore changing its approach, concentrating on three industry priorities:
1. Standards and Qualifications
3. Training and Development
