Construction Industry Training Board

The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is the Industry Training Board for the UK Construction Industry. It was established on 21 July 1964 by the Industrial Training (Construction Board) Order 1964.[1] and is currently within the responsibility of the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills. [2]


In October 2003 Charles Clarke, then Secretary of State for Education and Skills, awarded the licence for the new construction industry Sector Skills Council (SSC) to "ConstructionSkills", a partnership between the CITB and the Construction Industry Council (CIC).[3]

The activities of the CITB have been redefined by Statutory Instruments (Including the Training (Construction Board) Order 1964 (Amendment) Order 1991 and SI 1992 No. 3048)[1]
