Your employers are an in-scope ECITB Company – So what does this mean to you?
A little background information
The ECITB is a statutory body which acts on behalf of the engineering construction industry helping employers to attract, develop and qualify the people needed to meet work demands and create a sustainable and competitive workforce. In order to fund these objectives and activities, the ECITB has the statutory power and duty to assess and collect a training levy from all employers who operate engineering construction establishments.
To enable the ECITB to provide for the training needs of the engineering construction industry, under the Industrial Training Act, all ‘establishments’ operated by employers which are wholly or mainly engaged in engineering construction activities are registered with the ECITB and annually assessed for industrial training levy.
Employers who pay the training levy but choose not to become directly involved in training are still helping maintain the industry’s training and recruitment levels, as well as ensuring a safe and competent workforce.
How does this benefit you?
The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board provides professional advice, information, skills development and qualifications to help individuals within engineering construction succeed in their chosen careers.
Working closely with industry employers, their training programmes and Vocational Qualifications guarantee competence in practical craft and technician occupations as well as the technical, management supervisory, design and project management skills.
*Courses applicable for funding?(subject to application with the ECITB – you will need to apply to your ECITB regional account manager for available funding)
