CITB Digital Upskilling Commission – Information Event

Host: CITB
Venue: Kelham Hall Main Rd Kelham NG23 5QX
Date: Wednesday 24th April, 2019
Time: 09:00 – 11:00

A new report commissioned by CITB “Evolution or Revolution?” shows that construction can reap major rewards from digital skills and technology, but only if it takes decisive action in the next five years.

The research finds that as a less-automated sector, construction stands to gain much more from modernisation than other parts of the economy. Embracing digital technology and cutting-edge skills can help address ongoing industry challenges like wafer-thin profit margins; the need to recruit, upskill and retain the future workforce; and improving health, safely and mental wellbeing.


If you have digital business change expertise you can make a bid for CITB funds.

Options will be available to either lead on an application or to be part of a collaboration.

We welcome interest from:

• software development companies

• construction businesses who are keen to explore what advantages the use of digital adoption can offer

• management consultancies with digital business change expertise

• leadership think tanks with digital business change expertise

• federations

• higher education institutions with expertise in working with companies to develop digital leadership skills

• local enterprise partnerships (LEPs) with have an innovation lead or innovation programme

• non-profit organisations with digital innovation programmes.

This event will provide a catalyst for organisations to partner together, where appropriate. You will also hear a full outline of the full application process and the support that is available throughout from CITB.
