CITB has contacted over 40,000 construction employers for placement of Carillion apprentices under a £1.5m cash incentive programme. More than 850 employers have responded and offered job opportunities. As of 31 January 2018, of the 1,400 apprentices affected, 553 have received job offers.

To continue the support of the apprentices and the wider Carillion workforce and supply chain, CITB is offering an apprentice adoption grant:

  • An adoption grant of £1,000 will be paid to those employers who adopt a Carillion apprentice. The grant will be paid in two parts – £500 on sign-up, £500 after 3 months
  • A standard attendance grant will be paid on the basis that if a learner is in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd year, regardless of their progress in that year, they will receive the remainder of the attendance grant for that year
  • All achievement grants will be payable on full framework achievement
