CITB sells Cskills operation

The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) has agreed the sale of its awarding body, Cskills Awards, to NOCN.

The sale represents further reform of the CITB, which will no longer offer certificates and qualifications.

Cskills Awards will continue to provide services as before under the new ownership.

Cskills is approved by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual). It works with approved training centres across the UK and abroad, offering construction qualifications.  It is also accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to operate as a certification body delivering the nationally accredited certification schemes.

NOCN (previously the National Open College Network) is a national awarding organisation and government-approved apprenticeship assessment organisation.

On completion of the sale on 1st August, 24 Cskills Awards staff will transfer to NOCN.

CITB acting chief executive Sarah Beale said: “The sale of Cskills Awards is the right decision for the construction industry. NOCN has a commitment to continuing to service the breadth of products and services and maintain quality levels. In addition, NOCN will be able to greatly expand the range of qualifications on offer to customers, beyond construction occupations, as they are not subject to the same restrictions as CITB.”
