The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) is a statutory body and reports to its government sponsor body, the Department for Education (DfE). The ECITB is established for exclusively charitable purposes and is a registered charity. It has responsibilities to Parliament and to the engineering construction industry. It was formed in recognition of the industry's vital role in the UK economy, and the requirements for a statutory body to undertake the responsibilities of meeting the special training needs of an industry where the labour force is highly mobile and where there is less opportunity for individual employers to train.

Acting on behalf of the industry, ECITB works closely with Government and employers to attract, develop and qualify engineering construction personnel in hundreds of skills and disciplines. It provides businesses with the means to train engineers to the highest standards, via its regionally-based network of almost 200 specialist ECITB-accredited course providers.

The ECITB manages a national skills training fund, and invests over £25 million p.a. in providing the advice, information and support to employers needed to attract, develop and qualify the people required to create a sustainable and competitive workforce.

There you will find a list of companies currently in-scope to the ECITB and their locations. You will need to contact those companies of interest to you directly for employment opportunities. 

ECITB is an Investor in People

ECITB is committed to Equal Opportunities and welcomes applications from all sections of the community, particularly those that are under represented in the construction industry. ECITB encourages all applicants to complete the Equal Opportunities monitoring questionnaire and send in together with the completed application form.

The Dignity at Work Policy

The ECITB operates a Dignity at Work policy that states that ECITB expects a standard of conduct and behaviour that respects other people for what they bring to our organisation and for who they are as individuals. It means that everyone is expected to behave in a professional manner, and is treated with dignity and respect. The ECITB regards all forms of bullying and harassment as unacceptable behaviour that will not be tolerated.
The ECITB does not expect any of its employees to tolerate offensive behaviour from people working in the Engineering Construction Industry or from others with whom they come into contact, and will respond to incidents. Where such incidents occur, employees will report the matter to their manager who will take appropriate action.
