Constructionarium now CITB grant-eligable

Posted: 17th August 2022

Constructionarium is a not-for-profit organisation based within a 19-acre bespoke training facility in Norfolk. Over the past 19 years, its core business has been to provide essential practical programmes for Built Environment students in higher and further education who lack practical application by “Turning Theory Into Practice”.

With over 26 institutions attending year on year from the UK and US, its success has seen over 14,000 students take part in this unique learning since 2003. Working as part of a team to construct a scaled replica of an iconic project from around the world, students have learnt technical, practical and employability skills in an environment that replicates the industry in which they are headed.

When the pandemic struck, Constructionarium used the opportunity to diversify – offering NetZero webinars and short courses. It also achieved CITB accreditation as an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) which meant they can offer CITB funded training to industry. Their grant-eligible short courses can be found on CITB’s Construction Training Directory.

However, Constructionarium’s offering has just got better.

From the 17th of August 2022, employers who are in scope for CITB levy can benefit from receiving a Tier 3 Grant of £120 per person when attending a Constructionarium event. The training covers all aspects of personal development skills and is ideal for team building, as an introduction to construction, for emerging talent/early careers programmes, provides an appreciation of on-site practices irrespective of the delegates job role and supports skills training.

Constructionarium is proud to announce it is the only provider accredited by CITB to deliver grant funded experiential learning in the UK.

Julia Stevens, Chief Exec, said “We are delighted to shift the dial yet again in experiential learning. Being the first UK organisation able to offer CITB grant for this type of learning is fantastic. Having Constructionarium as a grant-eligible course will help organisations with the cost of learning and development for all its employees for many years to come.”

Jackie Ducker, Executive Director - Customer & Product at CITB said “CITB are delighted to recognise Constructionarium as a grant eligible course. The wide range of learning and personal development opportunities that come from one event are unique and something which CITB is very pleased to support.”
