CITB Short Course Duration Grant
Information for Employers
HSS Training is an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) with CITB, allowing our customers to claim grants for completing training on our registered courses. The CITB levy and grants scheme has been introduced to ensure the UK construction industry has the skilled workforce that it needs; providing grants for employers to train their workers. This helps to maintain health & safety standards on construction sites, keeping the right skills available for the industry to grow. In turn this will allow projects to be completed on time and within budget, in a safe and sustainable manner.
How much is the Grant?
The grant rates are split into three tiers, determined by the duration and content of the course.
•Tier 1 = £30
•Tier 2 = £70
•Tier 3 = £120
