Coronavirus (COVID-19) communication updates

The social and economic challenges stemming from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic are becoming clear. It means severe challenges for CITB and the construction employers we work with and support across England, Scotland and Wales.

We are reviewing the situation and developing plans of action that reflect the reality for our customers and the latest UK Government guidance.

This is a complex, rapidly changing situation, which means we must work more closely together than ever before to protect the industry's skills through this crisis and beyond. Where we can lead, we will, and where we can offer support, or signpost to others better placed to help, we will do that.

We will provide the latest information about all our operations on this page, and through our social media channels, to ensure our customers and partners are fully informed. We will provide regular updates, so please revisit this page for the latest information and advice.

Thank you for reading, we wish you well at this incredibly difficult time.
