Industry Training Board Review 2023 - call for evidence

Closed 25 Aug 2023

Opened 30 Jun 2023


A call for evidence on the effectiveness of the Construction and Engineering Construction Industry Training Boards (CITB and ECITB).

Why your views matter

The Department for Education has launched a review of CITB and ECITB. This review is part of a wider programme across government to ensure that Arm's Length Bodies remain effective. 

This call for evidence requests stakeholder views on the current and future operation of the CITB and ECITB to inform the review.

Government hopes to receive evidence from a wide variety of stakeholders. We would therefore be pleased to receive any information from any party with an interest in the review. We would particularly welcome the views of those companies within the scope of CITB or ECITB's current levy order.

What happens next

The ITB Review Team will consider all evidence submitted and it will be used to inform recommendations to Ministers.

We are unable to respond separately to those who have submitted evidence.

The outcome of the review will be published on GOV.UK.
