The construction industry rallies round to support former Carillion Apprentices

The CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) is encouraging employers to rally round and support former Carillion apprentices, who have been left without employment following the company’s liquidation.

They have worked closely with the ESFA (Education & Skills Funding Agency) to ensure funding is available so that it can continue to support the training for the 1400 Carillion apprentices.

The CITB are offering all of the former Carillion apprentices a face-to-face session with CITB Apprenticeships to find out their individual learning needs, allowing them to find an employer that best suits their skills and personalities.

The hotline phone number to call for both former Carillion apprentices and for construction employers who are interested in helping them, is 0344 994 4010 or email carillion.apprenticeshipsupport@citb.co.uk.

At NCA, we are looking to raise awareness of the situation and support these Apprentices as much as possible.

Thomas Marples, Head of NCA commented “This is clearly a very turbulent time in the construction industry and a very challenging early start to these apprentices’ careers. We would actively encourage any employers to offer their support to these apprentices who have found themselves made redundant through no fault of their own. We at NCA, have been in contact with CITB to offer our support for any apprentices within our region and we are available to offer to guidance for those app”

The National Construction Academy, part of 3aaa Apprenticeships, is working with employers across Derbyshire, providing them with enthusiastic, talented employees who are supported by high-quality training.

The National Construction Academy are also working with local Levy paying construction firms, to utilise their levy funds through construction Apprentices.
