Ian Major, the Manager of StoneTrain, Stone Federation GB's training arm, and the Training Officer of the Natural Stone Industry Training Group, has helped a number of CITB-registered stone companies to access this funding over the past 12 months. It has proved especially valuable in supporting the cost of OSAT (on-site assessed training for NVQs that allow experienced people to obtain a formal qualification and through this the correct CSCS Card).
