Previously, only courses designed by CITB-ConstructionSkills could carry the Cskills Awards badge of approval. Now CITB-ConstructionSkills is offering accreditation for third party courses.
Cskills Awards is the awarding organisation of CITB-ConstructionSkills.
The new accreditation service has been introduced following pilot schemes run with Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions, training provider R G Wilbury and Ploughcroft Renewable Training. CITB-ConstructionSkills hopes that it will pave the way for recognition of a new generation of transferable skills that meet the needs of the industry and individuals.
Adrian Beckingham, head of Cskills Awards, said: “This is great news for the industry; employees will now be able to gain training that has an industry recognised stamp of approval assuring its integrity and quality. It also benefits employers by giving customers confidence in the quality of their workforce.”
