Budget and Spending Review statement 27/10/21
Responding to the budget statement CITB Policy Director Steve Radley said:
“Today’s announcement on infrastructure spending, on top of government plans to meet its net zero commitments, show it’s critical to invest in construction skills.
“With employers already facing significant skills pressures, we must attract new talent from all areas and upskill the existing workforce.
“Today’s large-scale investments in T levels, maths, Skills Bootcamps and modernising Further Education will provide crucial support on skills and should help to ease pressure on employers looking to recruit and train. Building better pathways into work through traineeships and bootcamps and helping colleges to modernise are key investments. We look forward to building on our work so far to shape these programmes to deliver the skills the industry needs.”
