Welcome back CITB

18 Mar 13 The Construction Industry Training Board has finally given up trying to get the industry to call it CITB-ConstructionSkills.

It is now rebranding and reverting back to simply CITB.

The CITB was established in 1964. In 2003 the Labour government restructured industry training boards. CITB-ConstructionSkills, sometimes called CSkills or ConstructionSkills, was set up in an attempt to differentiate the legal entity from the organisation based at Bircham Newton that delivered training. It subsequently spent 10 years correcting anyone who called it the CITB.

Bircham Newton was renamed the National Construction College.

However, under the new rebranding, the clock is being turned back. CITB-ConstructionSkills, CSkills ConstructionSkills and the National Construction College have all been thrown in the bin. Back comes plain old CITB.

… Unless you are in Northern Ireland – where the statutory body for the construction sector operating remains CITB-ConstructionSkills Northern Ireland.
