Member Briefing: CITB / HBF Non-Construction Training Fund

Date: 24/08/16

CITB / HBF Non-Construction Training Fund

This note is a reminder for members that the special £1 million Non-Construction Training Fund agreed by CITB for HBF members remains open for claims.

The Fund provides enhanced levels of CITB Grant for training for sales and marketing, undergraduate and graduate training for non-construction disciplines and non-construction qualifications. Claims can be made for training undertaken between 1 September 2015 and 31 December this year.

As we have mentioned in previous briefing notes, the Fund is proving popular and so we would encourage members to submit claims to the Fund on a timely basis as this will assist us in managing the funding available as smoothly as possible through its life. Relevant learning achievements such as non-construction qualifications and degrees are often completed at about this time of year and it would be particularly helpful for us to have early knowledge of the likely level of such claims under the Fund.

Otherwise, the limits we introduced of:

  • A cap of £100,000 on any one company’s claims under the Fund
  • Within this, a cap of £40,000 on claims for sales and marketing training remain in place.

For further information on the programme, or details of how to get involved with the initiative, please contact Paul Gaze - Special Projects Manager at CITB, on 07736
