The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB)
The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) is the statutory skills body for the Engineering Construction Industry (ECI) in Great Britain. A non-departmental public body (NDPB) sponsored by the Department for Education and accountable to parliament, we work with employers and governments to attract, develop and qualify the engineering construction workforce in a wide range of craft, technical and managerial disciplines.
Employer-led, the ECITB invests approximately £30 million each year to enhance skills across the industry, through the industrial training levy. The levy is used to support employers train their workforce to industry standards, develop qualifications and courses that meet industry needs, and accredit and regulate an approved network of training providers. The ECITB is accredited as an Awarding Organisation by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual), Qualifications Wales and the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).
The Engineering Construction Industry (ECI) delivers and maintains the nation’s critical energy infrastructure, including in the oil and gas, nuclear and renewables sectors, alongside major process industries, such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food processing, water and waste treatment.
With 179,000 new construction jobs to be created in the UK in the next five years, Go Construct encourages people from all backgrounds to consider a career in construction.
Created by industry members and funded by the CITB levy, Go Construct provides a range of exciting and engaging information for new entrants to discover construction careers. Free downloadable classroom activities and marketing materials are available to help you to inspire the architects and civil engineers of the future.
