Fund title: CITB: Pathways into Construction

Focus of fund/fund aims:

Funding for initiatives to help under-represented groups to find employment in the construction industry.

Application deadline:

21 January 2019

Fund description:

The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is inviting bids for funds to help under-represented groups to get jobs in construction, and get into training which leads to jobs in construction.

Pathways into Construction aims to connect employers with people who don’t traditionally enter construction. It will also benefit those who are not in training or employment and want to enter the sector, but find it hard to do so.

There is a total budget of £5m to cover a number of projects from organisations which find new ways of recruiting staff from the priority groups which are:

  • young people not in education, training or work
  • long-term unemployed
  • service leavers
  • women wishing to join construction
  • full-time learners

CITB funding will cover up to 70% of project costs.
