CITB awards training funds in latest round of bidding

2 Feb 24

GIRI members VolkerStevin and Kier are set to become GIRI Approved Training Providers after securing funding from the CITB in the second round of bidding in last year’s training commission.

The announcement follows the award of CITB funds last summer to BAM UK & Ireland and Taylor Woodrow in the first round of bidding

The funds will enable VolkerStevin and Kier to train a number of in-house trainers to deliver GIRI’s supervisory and management skills and training across interfaces courses internally, as well as rolling out GIRI organisational leadership and project leadership training on specific projects.

Kier was awarded £109,620 to roll out GIRI training on eight projects: Hinkley Point C, AWE (Atomic Weapons Establishment), Mansfield Sustainable Drainage Systems, Thames Water WAAP (Waste Assets Assurance Program), UK Power Network, Environment Agency Collaborative Delivery Framework, South West Water Framework, and the Anglian Water Framework.

VolkerStevin was awarded £77,200, also for eight projects: CCF Framework, Wear Bridge, Kendal FRMS, Macclesfield WwTW, Southsea CPS, Littleborough Phase 1B, LEHES, and Padiham FRMS Main Scheme.

Both BAM and Taylor Woodrow also saw their funding amounts increased to cover an additional project each in order to maximise the impact of GIRI training. Taylor Woodrow has now been awarded £74,850 for five projects, and BAM has received £162,810 for six projects.

Contracts have been signed with VolkerStevin and Kier and training has already commenced at VolkerStevin, with train-the-trainer courses delivered in January and more planned for February. The first trainer-training courses at scheduled to be delivered at Kier in April, with leadership training to follow in May.
