Cskills Awards changes ownership
The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) has today agreed the sale of its awarding body, Cskills Awards, to NOCN.
Both parties are keen to emphasise that that Cskills Awards will continue to provide services as normal under the new ownership. Twenty four Cskills Awards staff will transfer their employment to NOCN on 1 August when the sale is completed, ensuring continuity and customer support. They will continue with their current working arrangements, either at CITB’s headquarters in Bircham Newton or as mobile workers, throughout 2017.
Sarah Beale, Chief Executive of CITB, said:
“The sale of Cskills Awards is the right decision for the construction industry. NOCN has a commitment to continuing to service the breadth of products and services and maintain quality levels. In addition, NOCN will be able to greatly expand the range of qualifications on offer to customers, beyond construction occupations, as they are not subject to the same restrictions as CITB.
“Our thanks and good wishes go with our colleagues who have not only served CITB well, but I am sure will continue to deliver excellent support to the industry through NOCN.”
