Earlier this year Energy & Utility Skills announced a collaboration with CITB to introduce a utilities sector specific Employer Network Pilot. The 12-month initiative will deliver a new way of funding the right training courses for CITB registered employers.
This joint effort stemmed from our CITB registered member organisations’ desire to enhance the use of the industrial training levy in addressing their organisational and industry-specific skill requirements.
Following some positive Employer Network Meetings in July and September, Energy & Utility Skills can now offer a list of courses eligible for CITB funding. These are:
- Puller Tensioner Overview
- Tower Rescue Overview
- Trainee Linesperson Overview
- Utility Winch Overview
- Winch Tractor Overview
- National Grid Competent Person
- SHEA (Water)
- SHEA (Gas)
- SHEA (Power)
- SHEA (Cross Country Pipeline CCPSHE)
- SHEA (Waste and Resource Management)
- SHEA (Core)
- Manual Handling (Half-Day)
- Emergency First Aid
- First Aid at Work
- Supervisory Skills Scheme
The above list is not conclusive, so if you have training requirements that doesn’t align with the current list of courses, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by emailing CITBlevy@euskills.co.uk. We are committed to providing courses that meet your training needs.
If you are interested in receiving funding to train your employees for one of the above courses, please fill out our training request form and we will be in touch within two weeks with an update. You must be a CITB registered employer to be eligible for funding.
