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 support up to 250 learners to pursue a 2-year off the job programme in a craft or technical discipline. Learners will acquire a level 3 engineering certificate as well as relevant site passports. The scheme has been developed in direct response to the expected drop in apprenticeship recruitment this year.
Eight providers in England will deliver the ECITB Scholarship around specific disciplines that correspond with anticipated regional skills shortages. The application process is managed by the licensed training providers with funding available for 132 learners this year.
Each learner will receive a term-time allowance of £140 per week.
