CITB to issue apprenticeship frameworks

Business secretary Vince Cable has named ConstructionSkills as the sole issuing authority for English apprenticeship frameworks in construction.

The appointment will see the construction industry training board take charge of issuing frameworks across England. It will take responsibility for issuing frameworks across Wales later this year.

Chief executive Mark Farrar said: “This is an excellent opportunity for CITB-ConstructionSkills to work closer with developers to ensure that English Apprenticeship Frameworks are delivered to a high standard and are fit for purpose.

“By ensuring that the English Apprenticeship Frameworks are developed with industry, CITB-ConstructionSkills will work with the sector to deliver the right skills for economic growth locally and nationally.”

As part of its work as the issuing authority, the CITB will publish all frameworks for the construction sector on the Apprienticeship Framework Online, a digital library of all apprenticeships and apprenticeship frameworks in development.

The appointment came into force in April.
