Applying for the CITB Skills and Training Fund

Companies can apply on an annual basis to reflect their training needs. The application will be considered in line with CITB’s key objectives and there is a window of opportunity at the end of each month. Typically, CITB provide response the middle of the following month. Businesses will then typically receive part of the cost upfront for each eligible course, receiving the remaining grant payments on completion of training. This allows companies to invest in training, with financial support from CITB.

It’s important to note that only training that has not been booked or delivered can be included in the application.
