The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) works with industry and government to research the sector’s needs, fund training, improve standards and ensure the industry has the workforce it needs. It is paid for by a levy on the construction industry itself. CITB is a non-departmental body of the Department for Education.
Home Secretary @PritiPatel sent a clear message to the world today that Britain is ready to welcome the best and brightest global #talent when the transition period comes to an end, as further detail on UK’s future immigration system are released.
@CITB_UK has published its formal consultation report with employers on the proposal to exempt more small employers from Levy payment proposals and on whether training funds were being reinvested in the right areas.
@GillianKeegan and Peter Lauener welcome new Trustees to @CITB_ board @SeddonSophie @_NovusSolutions @tonyelliottHRD @RobertsonGroup
CITB welcomes two new Trustees to its Board, who will contribute in shaping and monitoring the organisation’s future strategy.
Apprenticeships and Skills Minister Gillian Keegan MP appointed Sophie Seddon, People and Culture Director at Novus, and Tony Elliott, Group HR Director at Robertson Group, to the CITB Board.
Tony Elliott has over 25 years of experience in the fields of talent, people and learning, has been Chair of CITB’s Scotland Nation Council from September 2018 to June 2020, and is part of the senior team at Robertson, one of the UK’s largest privately-owned construction and infrastructure services companies. Tony feels strongly about the development of people and the growing of internal talent, the attraction of new talent, and ensuring skillsets are enhanced and future-proofed within construction.
