Each year CITB conducts a survey to measure the numbers of people entering construction training. Data is collected from colleges, private training providers and construction industry training centres across Great Britain. These include those coming through CITBís own managing agency and those entering other formal certificated training at craft and technical level. In all training for 17 different occupations is covered, providing a greater level of detail than is available from the Learning and Skills Council.
The results are used (together with separately sourced figures on higher level construction courses) to compare with estimates of skill demand contained in CITB's Skills Foresight Report.
