What is a CITB Approved Training Organisation?

A CITB ATO is an organisation which provides construction training courses and qualifications to a defined and industry-agreed training standard. An ATO could be, for example a commercial training provider, a construction employer’s in-house training department, or an educational establishment. To become an ATO, the organisation will have successfully completed CITB’s approval process.


Changes to the CITB's Grants Scheme from 1 April 2018

CITB’s new Grants Scheme comes into effect from 1 April 2018. In the first phase, the new Scheme will make claiming grants for construction training and qualifications easier. It will also support standardised training that can be transferred as a worker progresses within the industry.


Over time, the Scheme aims to provide more effective support to help the British construction industry address skills gaps and shortages.
