CITB have a Grants Scheme available each year which was put in place to maintain and improve the quantity and quality of training and development within the construction industry. The grants are available to most employers, who are registered with CITB with a main activity of construction. The grants are not intended to cover the full cost of training; however are a good contribution towards it. Assuming you are eligible, grants are available to claim back against the CPCS Theory test, Practical test and SVQ Level 2 in Plant Operations.

Flexible Training Opportunities gives Scottish businesses with up to 100 employees the opportunity to apply for up to £5,000 towards employee training costs.
Enhancing employees' skills will bring real benefits to employers, including improved productivity and a stronger more confident workforce.
Funding is available for up to 10 employees per business and the money is not a loan so the employer does not have to pay it back. Skills Development Scotland will refund up to 50% of each episode of employee training up to a maximum of £500 for each training episode. For example, if an episode of training costs £1,200 excluding VAT, we will refund £500. If it costs £300 excluding VAT, we will refund £150.
Types of training we will fund:
qualifications, including individual units
learning based on National Occupational Standards
