Construction NVQ Grants: All You Need To Know
CST Training offers a wide range of National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs), particularly for the construction industry. Each of these NVQs is designed to progress the careers of those working, or aiming to work, in construction. If you meet the criteria, you may be eligible for construction NVQ grants of up to £600.
The criteria for these grants is quite simple. If you’re a CITB Levy payer and you’re not behind on your payments, you will likely be eligible.
Today’s blog will tell you all you need to know about our construction NVQ grants. We’ll also be giving you some insight into a few of our most popular NVQs.
Construction NVQ Grants Explained
One of our construction NVQ grants will pay for the achievement of approved short-period qualifications pertaining to core construction skills. This includes NVQ/SVQs at Level 2 or higher, plant-related VQ achievements, and specific plant-related VQ units. A full list of the included qualifications can be found on the CITB website.
For each achievement you can apply for up to £600. Per individual, the maximum number of achievements is four at each level. You can only apply once per individual for the same achievement.
There is also an additional grant when it comes to specific plant-related VQ units. The funding available in this case would be £300. The maximum number of applications per individual is three.
Who Can Apply for a NVQ Construction Grant?
To apply for a NVQ construction grant, you must be registered with CITB. You must also be set up to pay the CITB Levy, and be making these payments on time. If you’re not paying the levy on time, you won’t be eligible for the grant. Likewise, if you’re not set up with the CITB levy in the first place, you won’t be eligible.
The only other criteria for receiving payments is that you’ve provided CITB with your bank details (makes sense!).
