Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB)

The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) is the skills, standards and qualifications body for the development of the engineering construction workforce of Great Britain. The ECITB works with the government, employers and training providers to attract, develop and qualify the engineering construction workforce in a wide range of craft, technical and professional disciplines. We invest about £25 million each year to support skills development within the industry. This includes providing technical, management and professional training and supporting apprenticeships and careers programmes. The ECITB plays a vital role, along with the education sector, government and employers, in ensuring the UK has workers with the skills to meet the needs of the engineering construction industry.
