CITB response to the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee announcement
Steve Radley, CITB Policy Director, said: “More funding and training flexibility for employers through the Lifetime Skills Guarantee announced by the Prime Minister today is a critical first step to support construction’s recovery.
"Changing apprenticeship funding rules to recognise prior learning and allow large employers to spend surplus Apprenticeship Levy funds in bulk will be vital to ensure the apprenticeship programme can more flexibly respond to industry’s skills needs.
"This is something that CITB and the CLC has engaged with Government in the Roadmap to Recovery plan, and I am delighted that the Government has listened.”
