CITB offers grants covering apprenticeships and a range of training courses. We have highlighted three grants that can be used to fully, or partially, fund training programmes delivered by Develop Training.

Apprenticeship grants

CITB pays grants for attendance and achievements on intermediate, advanced and higher approved apprenticeships in England, Wales and Scotland. The grant covers:

  • Off-the-job attendance with an approved apprenticeship provider, such as Develop Training Ltd
  • Achievement of an apprenticeship framework, including advanced, graduate and higher apprenticeship frameworks
  • Achievement of an End Point Assessment (EPA) of a new apprenticeship standard (England only)

Key information

  • For PAYE staff only
  • Employers can claim back £1965 per learner for the first year of attendance
  • Employers can also claim back £2375 for each Level 2 Apprenticeship completed and £3125 for each Level 3 Apprenticeship completed. For example, if a learner completes a Level 2 NCO Water Apprenticeship after one year, the employer claims £1965 + £2375 = £4340
