CITB / HBF Non-Construction Training Fund – final reminder on 31 March claims deadline

This note is a final reminder for members that the special £1 million Non-Construction Training Fund agreed by CITB for HBF members remains open for claims until 31 March. If you wish to make a claim for eligible training (see below), please make sure you submit this within this timescale.

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 eligible training undertaken between 1 September 2015 and 31 December 2016, but must be made to CITB by 31 March this year at the latest to meet the Fund’s cut-off date.

We very much want as many HBF members as possible to benefit from the Fund, so please do make sure you submit your claims for eligible training within the deadline. 

For reference, the limits introduced for claims are:

  • 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. 

Guidance on eligibility and claims is available on the HBF website here. For further information or guidance, please contact Paul Gaze - Special Projects Manager at CITB, on 07736 383222paul.gaze@citb.co.uk
