MD1322 LEP/CITB Construction Growth Project (Greater London)
Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) are state-sponsored, employer-led organisations that cover specific economic sectors in the United Kingdom and are licensed by the Government through the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES). Construction Industry Training Board (“CITB”) is the SSC for construction.
CITB approached the Mayor for funding to deliver an initiative with the London Enterprise Panel’s (LEP) Skills and Employment Working Group (SEWG) to promote growth in the construction sector. The GLA is asked to contribute £1million of funding, which will be match-funded by CITB. The Investment and Performance Board approved in principle £1million of Growing Places Funds (revenue) to be used for this purpose.
