Construction Skills People are pleased to announce our status as a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO). An ATO is an organisation which provides construction training courses and qualifications to a defined and industry-agreed training standard.
This development has resulted from CITB’s commitment to helping support training within the construction industry, and by recognising reputable training providers in this way hopes to cement high standards of training.
What are the new services?
Construction Training Directory
A searchable online directory of construction training courses, tests and qualifications delivered by Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) to defined training standards that have been developed with input from industry.
Employers can choose a provider based on location, price and timing, making it easy to select a course that best meets their needs.
Construction Training Register
An online register that holds individuals’ transferable, construction training courses and qualifications achievements. Over time, it will build a comprehensive picture of skills training across Great Britain.
Employers will be able to check the skills and competence of their workforce and new recruits, helping to confirm they have the right skills and improve productivity.
Approved Training Organisations (ATOs)
An organisation delivering construction training courses and qualifications to a defined training standard, who have successfully completed the CITB approval process.
These could include commercial training providers, in-house training departments, and educational establishments.
Automated grant payments
On successful completion of a course, an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) will confirm the learner’s achievement, upload the details onto the Construction Training Register, thereby triggering the automated grant process.
This will speed up the payment process and remove the need for employers to complete paperwork.
