Congratulations to the first 41 engineering construction employers to receive an award from the ECITB Skills and Training Charter, affirming their commitment to the skills development of their company’s workforce now and in the future.

As the leading skills body for the Engineering Construction Industry, the ECITB understands that people are our industry’s most valuable asset. The ECITB created the Skills and Training Charter to recognise and celebrate employers who are committed to developing workplace skills and competence in the engineering construction industry

Chris Claydon, ECITB Chief Executive, said: “Congratulations to the first wave of engineering construction employers to achieve an award from the ECITB Skills and Training Charter. The Charter recognises each companies’ commitment to high quality training and development to ensure their workforce has the skills required now and in the future.

“For many of these companies working in safety critical environments and moving across projects and sites, the Skills and Training Charter award shows that they prioritise safety and efficiency and their workforce competence is properly assured and validated.”

The ECITB works in partnership with these companies to ensure that clients, contractors and government have confidence that they carry out their role safely, competently and efficiently.

What our companies say about the Skills & Training Charter

Applus+ UK Ltd, a leader in the testing, inspection and certification sector, has received a Gold Award. “As an organisation which is solely dependent on operational staff, Applus embrace the ECITB’s ‘Skills and Training Charter’ and the ethos it underpins. Without the training facilitated by the ECITB our technicians and support staff would not be as adept or competent in their roles. The ECITB not only provides development and improvement in industry, but also provides opportunities and career paths for thousands of workers,” said a company spokesperson.

Actemium specialise in electrical engineering, electrical installation and support within the nuclear sector. Tony O’Connor, HQSE Manager with Actemium in Carlisle, said: “Actemium is delighted to receive the ECITB Gold Award for Skills and Training Charter certification. Achieving the highest level Gold Award is such a valuable asset to both us and our clients within the electrical nuclear industry, as it affirms our status as an approved trainer for assuring professional competence and improving safety and efficiency.”
