CITB to present industry's training and skills elite at the Pride of Construction Awards

Training board to hold London awards event to acknowledge the best individuals, companies and training partners.

The CITB’s Pride of Construction Awards takes place on Wednesday 10 September 2014, in an evening that will recognise the industry’s top training and skills providers, companies, industry leaders and apprentices.

Sponsored by Construction News and the Daily Mirror, the event will mark CITB’s 50th anniversary.

Those that have left a lasting legacy for future generations will be honoured with special tributes.

A range of categories will be presented on the night, among them will be a best apprentice award, with contributions to skills academies and supply chain engagement also recognised.

Other awards will honour the industry’s best employers, CITB’s best strategic and training partners, and the industry’s Personality of the Year.

CITB’s expert panel, comprised of well-known faces in the construction industry, judged the gold awards entries.

The judges are CITB and Wates Construction chairman James Wates; CITB chief executive Adrian Belton; the government’s chief construction adviser Peter Hansford; Institution of Civil Engineers past president Professor Barry Clarke; and Construction News associate editor Damon Schünmann.
