CECA Training & Development Forum

CECA’s Training and Development Forum has been established to enable training representatives from all member companies to exchange information, share good practice and discuss topical training issues.  This forum helps shape CECA’s training strategy and offering. It provides the impetus to strengthen CECA’s influence on issues such as funding, qualifications and client expectations.

  • Influence the CITB Grant scheme and other sources of funding;
  • Ensure that key stakeholder including Government, parliamentary parties and CITB take account of members training and development needs;
