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.
Launched in 2020, 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. The 2020 ECITB Scholars will begin their second year in September.
In 2021, training providers in England, Scotland and Wales will deliver the second cohort of ECITB Scholars in specific disciplines that corresponded with anticipated regional skills shortages.
The ECITB is currently tendering for delivery of the new 2021 Energy Transfer Technician 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.
