If you are carrying out training for any of your workforce, you should be claiming CITB grants for attendance and achievement on a wide range of courses including:
- Apprenticeships including Specialist Apprenticeships and Upskilling Programmes
- S/NVQ achievements
- Site Safety Plus
- Technical and Professional courses
- Short Duration off-the-job training.
You can claim for planned attendance on training courses that meet all your business needs through a Training and Development Plan. The grant is £50 per person for each full day (6 hours or more) and £25 per person for each half day (3 hours or more) of training completed and you will receive payment instalments throughout the year. This is available for a maximum number of days, based on the numbers of PAYE staff and labour-only sub-contractors you have declared on your CITB Levy Return. Grant is also available for training of 30 minutes or more which forms part of an approved Modular Training Programme (MTP).
If you do not have a Training and Development Plan, you can claim grant for Short Duration off-the-job training. The grant is £50 per person for each full day and £25 per person for each half day of training and you will need to complete and submit a claim form after each training course or qualification. This is also available for a maximum number of days, based on the numbers of PAYE staff you have declared on your CITB Levy Return, up to a maximum of £5,000 per employer per Grants Scheme year.
