The ECITB is the authority on engineering construction skills. Along with the education sector, government and employers, we help the workforce undertake training and development activities to build a sustainable industry able to meet future challenges and opportunities.
As part of our pledge to help industry meet workforce demand and skills requirements, the ECITB has assembled the Innov8 Group. The Innov8 Group, which references the eight sectors of the Engineering Construction Industry, is comprised of individuals from within industry that are in the early stages of their career journey.
By listening to fresh views on engineering construction careers, the ECITB can help our industry attract a new generation of engaged, diverse and dynamic engineers to enable UK industry to continue to compete globally.
This group of future industry leaders meet periodically throughout the year, predominantly through a virtual environment to maximise opportunity whilst also reducing impact on work schedules and carbon footprint.
The ECITB Innov8 group are tasked with activities and discussion relating to the following key areas of strategic focus:
- Attraction & Retention
- Diversity & Inclusion
- Future Proofing
