Sharing the investment across the industry helps to maintain a solid skills base, meeting the immediate needs of individual employers and in the long term benefiting the whole industry by helping avoid skill shortages and inflationary pay.

Through legislation CITB-ConstructionSkills NI is authorised to raise a levy from the Northern Ireland construction industry to fund its activities and services that aim to encourage adequate training.

The levy system is the fairest way of gathering funds from employers to pay for the training needs of the collective workforce. The CITB-ConstructionSkills NI levy means that all employers in the industry make the appropriate financial contributions (currently 0.6% of the wages bill).

The benefits of the statutory levy system are about more than just giving  CITB-ConstructionSkills NI levy back to the industry in the form of CITB-ConstructionSkills NI grants. The levy funds a wide range of activities in addition to the CITB-ConstructionSkills NI grants system.

From 1 September 2013 employers must submit their actual levy return in order for grant to be released. If you need a Levy Annual Return Form please contact 028 90825 466.
