Skills & Training

CECA has a key role in shaping the future of training in the construction industry, with close links to policy makers in Government and other relevant representative bodies. We provide sector-specific knowledge to a wide range of CITB committees and working groups to ensure that the specific and unique needs of the civil engineering community are taken into account when training related issues are being discussed.

Our members can seek assistance in matters relating to levy & grant, card schemes and funding applications as well as having the opportunity to attend regional training sessions and update briefings. Where more company-specific interventions or advice is required, CECA members can request a visit from one of our in-house Training & Development Managers. Our Training & Development Forum is a well-respected body that regularly receives first hand updates from leading industry figures. We also source funding which subsidises certain training activities.
