The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) is the statutory skills body for the Engineering Construction Industry in Great Britain. An arm’s length body of Government sponsored by the Department for Education (DfE), the ECITB works with employers to attract, develop and qualify the engineering construction workforce in a wide range of craft, technical and professional disciplines. We are an employer-led registered charity, investing more than £20m each year to enhance skills across the engineering construction industry.
Engineering construction is a specialised industry that underpins the design, delivery, maintenance and decommissioning of the UK’s critical infrastructure. The engineering construction supply chain operates across the oil and gas, nuclear and renewables sectors, as well as major process industries, such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food processing, water and waste treatment. This network of companies and their skilled workforce will play a key role in delivering net-zero.
The ECITB is accountable to parliament and funded by a levy that it is required to collect from the industry. The levy is an investment in the future used to support employers train and upskill their workforce to industry standards, develop qualifications and courses that meet employer needs, and regulate a network of approved training providers.
