We’re a CITB Approved Training Organisation

We're a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO)

CADUK are a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO), this means that we’ve demonstrated to CITB that we deliver our qualifications to a defined industry standard.

Our CITB ‘ATO’ status enables our CITB registered customers to claim back £600 for each construction-specific qualification through the Short Period Qualification Grants scheme.

This even applies to small employers (i.e. those with a wage bill of less than £80k) who don’t actually pay the levy.

This grant scheme covers directly employed staff on the payroll, and all subcontractors.

To check if your company is eligible to claim please call CITB on 0344 994 4455.

Which NVQs are eligible?

All of our Construction-specific qualifications from NVQ Levels 2-7 are eligible for the CITB grant (provided that the qualification is funded from a CITB registered company).

This includes Plant Operations, Controlling Lifting Operations, Construction Supervision and Construction Management NVQs.

Free NVQs in Plant Operations?

You read that right! Our Level 2 NVQs in Plant and Lifting Operations are priced at £599+VAT and these are still eligible for the full £600 CITB Grant!

This means that these NVQs are effectively free for CITB registered companies!

Are the Health and Safety NVQs eligible?

Unfortunately our Health and Safety qualifications at Levels 6 and 7 are not eligible for the CITB Grant because they’re not construction-specific and are accessible to candidates from a range of other industries such as retail, oil and gas, corporate business etc.  

How do I make a claim?

On completion of your NVQ, you will need to fill out a CITB Grant application form which you can download here.

The form only takes a few minutes to complete and requires basic information such as your company’s CITB registration number & contact information as well as the name, registration number, DOB, and completion dates of the learners.

You will then email the completed form along with a scanned copy of the learner’s certificates of achievement to and you’re done. 

The claim will usually be processed within around 4 weeks.
