Training Manager Service
Enabling SMEs to reach their goals & grow through funding and training
Aim of the Service
To enable all registered businesses to claim funding support from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).
How it works
Many small construction and trades businesses train their people but fail to claim funding because they don’t know how or feel the process is too difficult for them or simply don’t have the time. The CITB has around 80,000 (approx.) registered businesses of which only 23,000 (approx.) claim any funding.
There are any more built environment sector organisations who are not registered with CITB and may be losing out on thousands of pounds through not claiming for the training they undertake. The development of CITB online has helped to smooth the process, but time is still a factor for many owner/MDs.

Claim Funding For Your Training and Get Paid!
What Can I Claim?
There are various CITB Funds you can claim from, but the main ones we use are:
- Skills and Training Fund – where you can claim up to £10,000 depending on the size of your business
- Training Grant – where you can claim for a range of site related training activities
- Apprentice Grant – where you can claim for any apprentices you have that attend college. This can be around £2500 per apprentice per year.
+ An Achievement Grant of approx. £3,500 for each apprentice that successfully receives any college qualification.
Do I have to pay anything?
If your salary payments to staff and contractors are less than
£120,000 then you will not have to pay the CITB levy but can still
claim all the funding.
However, if they are more than that then you will have to pay the
levy which would be:
0.3% of your salary and wages bill
1.25% of your CIS subcontractor bills
What Other Costs Are there?
There is only our fee of £750 per year and you get all the help listed above!
