Construction Apprentice Recruitment 2019

Dear Employer

Construction Apprentice Recruitment 2019

 CITB Grant for taking on an apprentice has increased from 1 April 2019 to £14,500

 As a current recruiter of construction apprentices, I write to advise that we are now taking bookings for apprenticeships classes due to commence from August 2019 onwards for craft apprenticeships as below:-

  • Brickwork
  • Carpentry & Joinery
  • Decorative Floorlaying
  • Painting & Decorating
  • Plastering
  • Roof Slating & Tiling
  • Stonemasonry
  • Wall & Floor Tiling
  • Wood Machining

Many classes can fill up quickly during the summer months so if you do have anyone in mind, or are looking for assistance sourcing candidates, then please do get in touch as soon as possible.  We can offer you additional funding to trial candidates that we recommend to you.

If you wish to start an apprentice prior to the commencement of formal training at college/centre then please let us know and we can discuss your options.

Below this mail is our promotional flyer outlining the benefits of recruiting an apprentice with CITB as your Managing Agency.  We offer a complete range of services including a dedicated Apprenticeships Officer who will organise sign up of your apprentice with the Scottish Qualifications Agency (SQA), regular quarterly review meetings with your apprentice both within college and on site to monitor their progress towards their qualification in their chosen trade, as well as providing support with their well-being and safe-guarding.  For you, as an employer registered with us, using CITB as your Managing Agent entitles you to automatic grant payments on sign-up of your apprentice so no additional paperwork is required after sign-up in order to receive your grants.

We can also advise you on additional funding available for training/upskilling your existing employees or grow your business through various funding streams so please get in touch if you would like to hear more on this.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Billy Baxter

Area Delivery Manager (Highlands, Moray and Islands)
