Adrian Belton, chief executive of CITB, has resigned after three years in the role. He will leave the organisation at the end of 2016. Sarah Beale, currently chief financial officer and corporate performance director, will become the acting chief executive.

The resignation of Adrian Belton is regrettable, particularly as it is just before the organisation goes through the next consensus process in 2017. FIS has however developed a robust independent training plan for the sector that will function whoever is at the helm of CITB or indeed if it survives next year’s vote.

We need to think differently about training and taking control of the provision, development and funding of this process. Only then can we make training a simple choice for you to develop your business.
