The NFB understands that access to finance can be barrier for undertaking training that would support business improvement. As all of our courses are contextualised for construction, we work hard to ensure that as many as possible attract grants and funding.

Fully Funded Programmes

The NFB has developed a number of fully funded initiatives providing members with access to training and business development opportunities around some of the challenges facing the sector today. Our latest funded project is looking at digital transformation; more details can be found on the Digital Leadership page Click here.

If you have identified an NFB training programme or would like us to support you with addressing gaps in knowledge, we may be able to help you access these funds to contribute towards the cost of the training.

Approved Training Organisation 

The NFB is a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO) which means we can provide construction training courses and qualifications to a defined and industry-agreed training standard. Although not all of our courses are aligned to standards, where this is the case CITB grants will be paid upon successful completion.

 

Grants and Funding

CITB registered companies will be eligible to access grants that cover day to day training and funds to cover specific projects and commissions.

CITB grants contribute to the cost of training and qualifying your workforce in construction-related subjects across the following three categories:

  • Short course grants
  • Qualification grants (Our ILM Level 3 and 5 Leadership and Management courses are eligible for this)
  • Apprenticeships grants

 

CITB also provide funding for specific projects relating to careers, innovation and training. Below are three funding options that may be available to help fund your training needs:

  • Skills and Training Fund
    Up to £10K for skills and training for small- or micro-sized employers and up to £25k for medium-sized employers
  • Structured fund
    For projects where CITB has identified a need for investment and commissions bids based on a set theme
