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.

CECA’s Annual Training and Development Survey helps CECA:

  • Understand the type and quantity of training that CECA members have participated in and their requirements for the future;
  • 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;
  • Appreciate and address any skills shortages perceived by members;
  • Identify where there are insufficient training resources to match demands;
  • Plan future CECA training events
