CITB-ConstructionSkills NI today launched a four week multi-media campaign promoting the £1.6million grants scheme which is available to all registered employers in the construction industry.
The campaign encompasses activity such as radio advertising, direct mail and text messaging in a move to improve awareness amongst construction employers of funding they are entitled to.
Barry Neilson, Chief Executive of CITB-ConstructionSkills NI said, “We want to encourage a culture of training and qualifications in the construction industry and one of the ways we try to do this is through our Grants scheme. We offer grants to support a wide range of training and qualifications and this year we have made £1.68million of grant funding available to registered employers to contribute to the cost of their training. We are the only sector in Northern Ireland to still benefit from such a system but employers are not making the most of it. That is why we are putting our efforts into such a high profile marketing campaign to ensure the industry is aware of this funding and encourage them to use it.”
