The ECITB has launched a new Scholarship scheme to help bring new talent into the engineering construction industry while employers rebound from the economic impact of the Covid-19 crisis.
The Scholarship scheme will help bring new talent into the engineering construction industry while employers rebounded from the economic impact of the Covid-19 crisis.
The scholarship scheme enables learners to pursue a full time 1 or 2-year off the job programme in a craft or technical discipline. Learners will acquire recognised engineering qualifications as well as relevant site passports.
In 2020, eight providers in England commenced the delivery of the ECITB Scholarship in specific disciplines that corresponded with anticipated regional skills shortages.
The ECITB are currently tendering for delivery of the new 2021 Scholarship cohort, the learner application process will open again shortly for a September start with the appointed provider details being available on this web page.
As before, each learner will receive a term-time allowance of £140 per week subject to satisfactory programme attendance.
