The only contractors to make the list below were Kier, BAM, O’Rourke and O’Halloran and O’Brien.
The grant figures were revealed in the CITB’s latest report and accounts for 2020-21.
The accounts show that the DfE-funded Construction Skills Fund (CSF) hubs, often run by local councils on major development sites, provided free training and site experience to just under 6,000 local people in 2020-21, with almost 900 gaining long-term employment in the construction industry.
CITB’s successor to CSF are Onsite Experience hubs, set to deliver over 8,500 onsite experiences, with at least 3,800 candidates achieving sustained employment by 2024.
Tim Balcon, CITB Chief Executive, said: “Our accounts for 2020-21 show how it was no ordinary year for the sector. To protect skills CITB acted quickly to provide assistance, doing everything we could to protect apprenticeships as well as enabling employers to continue training amid very difficult and constantly changing circumstances.
“From Levy receipts, 84p in every pound was invested in the last financial year into employer funding and industry-wide initiatives to address skills requirements. As construction recovers from the pandemic, CITB’s support for skills and training will remain at the heart of helping to solve the current, emerging and future challenges that the industry faces.”
