ECITB Prospectus






Welcome to the Midland's regional page for the ECITB.

Kevin Benson (UK Competency and Funding Manager) has been appointed the new Midland's Regional Chair from 2015.  He says:

"In current times when the development of employees' skills and competencies has become ever more important to the progress our industry is making, the collaboration of employers within the Midlands region is imperative to the development of their own staff, both onsite and in supporting functions.  These are exciting times to be involved with the ECITB at both a regional and board level as the UK skills shortage and demands from other sectors provides us with a challenge not only to develop but also enhance and retain those skills with the UK engineering construction industry".

Colin Grimes (Regional Account Manager - Midlands) says:

"2015 looks like being a busy year for the Midlands Region with the priority of increasing new entrants into the industry through apprenticeships and re/upskilling routes.  Focus will also be directed on the skills priorities identified through the Main & SME/Water forums where there is work to do to meet common goals.  The Midlands team will also be working more closely with schools in the region and carrying out activities such as interactive workshops to introduce students to the world of engineering construction".
