Training

We are delighted to announce that CAGE GN have been allocated £25,000 of funding from CITB for training in 2017.

To qualify for free / subsidised training your organisation must: –

  • Be registered as “in scope” with CITB
  • Be a member of CAGE GN (from 1st April 2017 this will mean having paid your annual membership fee for 2017)
  • Have submitted your quarterly training return (i.e. to qualify for training in January to March 2017 you must have submitted the quarterly return to December 2016)
  • Have paid all prior “employer contributions”

Employers are asked to contribute 50% of the costs when the course, per individual, costs £150 or more and/or if the course lasts more than 1 day.

Should nominated individuals not attend the course or not give sufficient notice of non attendance (normally 7 days), their employer will be charged the full cost of the course.

CITB have set maximum limits that you can receive in any one year: –

  • Employer – £2,500
  • Employee – £1,000

CAGE GN re-cycles the “employer contributions” and membership fees to provide additional funding for free/subsidised training for members.

Members undertook £35,000 of training in 2016.(made up of the £25,000 grant from CITB and £10,000 of re-cycled member contributions. We anticipate spending circa £40,000 in 2017.

A sum of £10,000 has been allocated for the period from October to December 2017, members who have completed their Quarter 3 2017 training returns are eligible for free/subsidised training.
