National Construction Colleges (NCCs) in England are set to reopen with face to face training in July.

The CITB has today told ScaffMag it’s reopening their construction colleges at Bircham Newton, Erith and Kings Norton in July to restart face to face training.

The CITB said they have been carefully monitoring the evolving COVID-19 position and the information which is being regularly issued from the UK Government.

CITB Chief Executive Sarah Beale said: “Our priority will continue to be learner and colleague safety, therefore we will start to deliver training through a phased approach, with pilot courses initially being offered from July onwards.

We will continue to monitor and review our procedures to ensure that the appropriate level of safety is maintained.”

The CITB we will be making direct contact with NCC apprentices in the coming weeks to confirm the restart of their learning.

NCC Inchinnan training centre in Scotland will, for now, remain closed, the CITB said but will continue to monitor the Scottish Government advice.
