CITB statement in response to today’s Queens speech

Steve Radley, Director of Policy at the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), said:

“It’s great to see the Government  setting out its ambition for three million more apprenticeships. Employers and Government now need to get together to work out how to deliver it.”

“The potential for developing skills and providing careers for the next generation is enormous but we will only achieve this by setting out bold new ways to get there. This means finding better ways to attract new entrants, developing more desirable models for learners and employers and working with providers to help them deliver the training that industry needs.”

“We look forward to working with Government and employers to help deliver on this bold ambition.”
