Onsite Construction – CSCS pilot scheme

Now, to support progression into work from Onsite Construction T Levels, the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is working with DfE, Gatsby, NOCN and CSCS to fund a pilot a scheme to support progression for T Level graduates who wish to pursue a career in Carpentry & Joinery or Bricklaying.
