CITB Skills & Training Fund

As one of the first registered Approved Training Organisations in the UK, Citrus can help you claim up to £10,000 of ADDITONAL CITB funding for construction training. This extra financial support comes from the CITB’s Skills & Training Fund. What’s even better, it’s in addition to your normal CITB Grants. In fact, you can claim your normal Grants on top of the training you complete with your £10,000!

What is the fund?

The CITB Skills & Training Fund is a CITB incentive aimed at micro and small construction companies to encourage them to upskill their workforce. CITB-registered employers with up to 99 directly employed staff on the payroll can apply for funding once every 12 months. The funding can be spent on training that is covered by the CITB grant scheme.
