Update on Flexible and Structured Funding – next window for applications opening 18 October

The next CITB Flexible funds application window will open on 18 October and close on 14 November.

To date we have awarded £13m through these funds to our stakeholders. Our Skills and Training fund (dedicated to employers with less than 50 employees), which is part of CITB’s Flexible fund has been particularly successful, with awards totalling over £1million. Full listings of approved projects can be found on our funding page

Amount available

A total of £20 million is available for funding in 2016. Different amounts are available under each funding option.

In early October we will hold a series of webinars and workshops to raise awareness of the funds, and how eligible organisations can apply. At these workshops we will help with funding applications, and be at hand to answer any questions you might have. These workshops and webinars are intended specifically to support organisations looking to make an application in window five.

Who can attend?

Funds are available to one or more of the groups below, depending on the funding option:

  • Construction employers registered with CITB (individuals and groups)
  • Construction industry federations
  • Trade unions associated with construction occupations
  • CITB-approved training groups.
