The CITB logo

The CITB or Construction Industry Training Board is the Industry Training Board for the UK Construction industry.[1] The CITB was established on 21 July 1964 by the Industrial Training (Construction Board) Order 1964,[2] and was one of a number of training boards covering UK industries. It is a non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.[3]

In October 2003 Charles Clarke, then Secretary of State for Education and Skills, awarded the licence for the new construction industry Sector Skills Council (SSC) to "ConstructionSkills", a partnership between the CITB and the Construction Industry Council (CIC).[4] The CITB became known as CITB-ConstructionSkills, or simply ConstructionSkills, for the most of the next 10 years.

The activities of the CITB have been redefined by Statutory Instruments (including the Training (Construction Board) Order 1964 (Amendment) Order 1991 and SI 1992 No. 3048).[2]

CITB name

In March 2013, it was announced that the organisation would drop brands such as CITB-ConstructionSkills, CSkills Awards and National Construction College and revert to its original CITB name as a result of industry feedback suggesting that multiple brands were causing confusion.[5]
