Body is sole issuing authority for English construction apprenticeship frameworks

CITB-ConstructionSkills has been appointed the issuing authority for English apprenticeship frameworks in construction.

As the sole issuing authority for the construction sector, the organisation’s role is to support framework developers and ensure frameworks comply with the requirements.

Mike Farrar, chief executive of CITB-ConstructionSkills, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for CITB-ConstructionSkills to work closer with developers to ensure that English Apprenticeship Frameworks are delivered to a high standard and are fit for purpose.

“We look forward to the exciting challenge ahead for CITB-ConstructionSkills. By ensuring that the English Apprenticeship Frameworks are developed with industry, CITB-ConstructionSkills will work with the sector to deliver the right skills for economic growth locally and nationally.”

CITB-ConstructionSkills will publish English apprenticeship frameworks for the construction sector on the Apprenticeship Framework Online (AFO) website. The organisation will also have statutory responsibility for issuing frameworks across Wales later this year.
