National Roof Training Group responds to CITB’s Supporting Training Groups – industry wide consultation launch, and urges roofing company members to support group activities by replying positively to the consultation.
The National Roof Training Group (NRTG) has stated “All 88 Training Groups across the UK are under threat”, and is urging roofing company members to have their say in CITB’s new consultation.
This is in response to the Covid-19: CITB chief exec update – 11 November 2020 from Sarah Beale, which explained CITB has launched “an industry wide consultation on how best to provide support in future. This will help us understand the biggest benefits of Training Groups to employers and gather thoughts on the options we are presenting.”
In a statement released today (12th November), the National Roof Training Group explained: “All 88 Training Groups across the UK are under threat. CITB is consulting the industry about the value they see in training groups and has made proposals. Statistics have been provided by CITB to Groups, be it that in some cases, these are incorrect and relate only to training days for six months (including lockdown periods) and not to the general support and the many other activities we offer on a daily basis.
“Roof training groups, have, in the past days, provided key information, and an alternative proposal to CITB which, if agreed, would support the retention of all roof training groups across the UK.
“Groups are asking their roofing company members to support group activities by replying positively to the consultation. The questionnaire has just seven questions, but space for individual views on CITB’s proposals. We urge you to visit the link and use the comments sections to stress your support for us.”
