Training group spells out restructuring plan in three year business plan

The Construction Industry Training Board is getting rid of more than 800 staff over the next three years as part of a major restructuring initiative called Vision 2020.

The news means 60% of its current workforce will be gone with the training group three weeks into a 45 day consultation with its 1,370 staff and unions Unite and GMB. This is expected to wrap up by the middle of next month.

A business plan unveiled today shows that more than 400 jobs will go by next year with the group taking the axe to another 360 jobs over the following two years which will see running costs cut from £155m in the current financial year to just over £110m by 2020/21.
