Ian Major: Don't miss out on £10,000 for training.
The CITB Flexible Skills & Training Fund is there to help smaller companies fund their training.
The reminder comes from Ian Major, Manager of Stone Federation's StoneTrain and Training Officer with the Natural Stone Industry Training Group. He says claiming the money is easy, as you can discover by watching a new video on the CITB website that shows you the procdure to follow. Click here to view it.
Ian says that over the past nine months many stone sector SMEs have successfully applied for funding to cover the costs of training – notably to pay for OSATs that enable experienced employees to gain the NVQs they need to get the correct level of CSCS Card. But he says there are many other ways in which this funding can be spent.
Ian: "If you are a CITB-registered stone sector SME I strongly encourage you to watch the video to see how up to £10,000 of funding support each year can be obtained."
