The DLPTF and CITB acknowledge the mutual benefits of working closely together and provide a structured, proven support framework to the benefit of the DLPTF members.

In the last 24 months the collaboration between the two organisations has increased significantly with a more organised approach being taken by both parties to address key skills development and learning capabilities.

CITB take a lead role in developing training strategy and influencing supply and funding for the whole construction sector, including specialists. This combined with the DLPTF co-operation means that both organisations work closely with the Governments and its departments such as the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS), employers and other relevant bodies.
