Aims & Mission Statement

"Satisfying local skill and Apprenticeship needs, leading to greater prosperity for our Members"

Although our Members' needs will always be the priority, the national network of Independent Training Groups is normally set CITB Targets each year, which drives operational funding. These are usually agreed at the beginning of April, focusing on Work Experience, Apprenticeships, workforce development, coupled with the administrative and managerial aspects. Each is then monitored and measured on a quarterly basis, based on its Financial Year (April to March). The previous year's performance usually acts as a benchmark for each subsequent year. These Targets are reflected as follows and the outcomes suitably posted at the end of each operating Quarter.

Quarterly Targets are a bi-product of Annual Targets, and therefore measured accordingly.

Work Experience is a concept designed to raise the profile of the industry/trade/skill, ultimately leading to a structured and fully endorsed Apprenticeship. With the future of the industry at stake, this approach facilitates a natural foundation across the 12 month landscape.
