Ryebridge Construction has joined the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), becoming a key member of the industry training board for the UK construction industry.
Director Daniel Coyle said: “The CITB, like us, believes that developing the skills of workers in the construction industry is crucial to the health of the UK economy. We are proud to add CITB membership to our list of accreditations and awards.”
The CITB works with construction companies to help improve skills, increase competitive edge and respond to challenges including the low carbon agenda, the reduction of costs on-site and the recruitment of the best and brightest talent in the sector.
The CITB was established in 1964 by the Industrial Training Order 1964, and was one of a number of training boards covering UK industries. It was a non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills until 2016 when it moved to the Department for Education.
In addition to working with the CITB Ryebridge Construction has joined a Luton construction forum, led by Luton Borough Council, and is working with fellow construction firms and key organisations to promote construction as a career choice to students, graduates and people looking for a new challenge.
