Construction is an industry which requires a variety of different skills and abilities. It is important that people from different backgrounds, life experiences and abilities are employed to enable us to achieve the high levels of skills needed to be world leaders.

CITB-ConstructionSkills wants to attract and support the best qualified people to work in the construction industry. Your information will only be used to make things better for you and others. If we don't know who is applying for an apprenticeship we can't do everything we would like to support you, whether you are white/black, older/young, married/single, straight/gay, man/woman. We want to make sure we're being fair and that people from all backgrounds are getting the opportunity to do an apprenticeship in construction. Any information you provide is protected by law which makes sure we protect this information and deal with it responsibly. This information will not be used in any recruitment or selection decision and it will not be passed on to any employers without your permission.

So that your training environment is one where you can give your best and realise your full potential, CITB-ConstructionSkills will make sure that you are treated fairly, with dignity and respect throughout your apprenticeship.
