The credit can be used against training purchased from the federation’s training group – the NDTG – at its Hemel Hempstead training centre.
The NDTG is at the cutting edge of specialist demolition training with highly experienced trainers and a choice of classroom and practical-based courses.
The scheme will see £150,000 injected directly into the industry to help member firms address their shortfall of labour and invest in the next generation of demolition professionals.
NFDC CEO Howard Button said: “The demolition industry, like the construction industry, continues to struggle with a shortage of skilled workers across all levels.
“Unless we can invest in our own industry we will not be ready to face the challenges and opportunities presented to us today and in the future.
“In addition to general industry shortages in skilled workers, there is empirical evidence that tells us many organisations are finding it hard to obtain funding for apprentices from the Apprenticeship Levy, which is only exacerbating the situation.
“Members of the NFDC strongly believe in two things – the importance of positive investment in their workforces, and attracting the talents of gifted apprentices.
“At our recent AGM they asked the NFDC Board to look at ways to support them in their training efforts.”
