What is a CITB approved training organisation? (ATO)

To become an ATO, training providers must be able to demonstrate that they deliver training to a defined industry standard.

Why is it important to book training with a CITB approved training organisation? (ATO)

CITB has determined which courses are eligible for grants, if you’re an employer in the construction industry you’ll want to be able to claim grants when your employees attend these courses. To be able to do this, your organisation must be registered with CITB and you need to book your training with an ATO. Otherwise, in future, you will not be able to claim for eligible courses delivered by companies who are not ATOs.

Approved Training Organisations are required to upload delegate achievements to the Construction Training Register within 10 days of successful completion of an eligible training course. This upload then triggers your grant payment.

To upload the achievements, we requires the following delegate information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • DOB
  • Email address
  • NI number
  • CITB Levy number

This can either be recorded at the time of booking or by completing the paperwork at the start of the course.

Unfortunately, ATO’s are not currently able to do this for all courses that are grant eligible. For example, NVQ’S. In these instances, employers need to complete a claim themselves.

In future, ATO’s will be able to upload achievements for all eligible courses and employers will no longer be able to claim grants retrospectively, this date isn’t set in stone yet but you can be confident when using ALLENBY TRAINING SERVICES LTD that you will get the most out of your CITB Levy.
