Everything you need to know about becoming a construction apprentice

Lodgings and Travel

Sometimes, it may be necessary for you to lodge away from home when you are training at college.

Your apprenticeship officer will arrange this for you. To make sure you are safe, they will only book you into CITB-Constructionskills approved lodgings near to your college (or training provider) and pay for them.

You can also claim some travel costs for journeys to and from your college (or training provider) and CITB-ConstructionSkills will pay expenses over £10 a week. You will be responsible for travel costs to and from your place of work though.

All college fees are met by CITB-ConstructionSkills.
