The portal is open for employers to register up to the 31st Jan 2017. We do not want any PDA members to miss out on the Sector Specific Training Plan (SSTP).

To find out how to complete your plan check out the link below. The form  on the CITB website contains a list of industry specific training courses that are eligible for additional grant funding on the CITB Sector Specific Training Plan. The courses listed on the Training Plans have been agreed between CITB and the PDA.

 If any other PDA employers wish to join the SSTP, please  register now via the link above by 31st Jan 2017 and please make sure your 2016 CITB Levy Return has been submitted by 31st Jan 2017.

It only takes 5 minutes to register. Check out the original ‘How to guide’.


This lists that the 1st interim claim is due from the end of November 2016. Once an employer has registered and been accepted on the SSTP, the Grants Team send them a claim form and they can use this to submit their first interim. As long as they register before 31st January 2017 your employers may backdate claims to 1st August 2016.
