About CITB apprenticeships

An apprenticeship combines learning at a college/training provider with on-site experience to give apprentices the right mix of technical and practical skills

The benefits of taking on an apprentice 

There has never been a better time to offer apprenticeships, with one in five employers hiring more apprentices to help them through the current economic climate. 

You will be getting a keen, motivated member of staff that wants to learn and help your business to grow. In fact, 80% of employers say apprentices have made their workplace more productive. 

Our Construction Work Experience Programme can help you to see how an apprentice could be good for your business. 

All CITB's apprenticeship training is developed in consultation with the industry, meaning an apprentice will learn the right skills for the job.
