The Employer Network Pilot for the Plant & Tool Hire sector was launched in January 2023 as a new initiative set up and funded by CITB, with HAE delivering the pilot.
The pilot aims to simplify the way that employers access support and funding, with a more flexible approach to the training that can be delivered through the pilot. Unlike the restrictions in some other schemes, the training can be anything that supports construction employees.
Being part of the network couldn’t be easier, there are no forms to complete and the training team is on hand to guide and support employers through identifying the training that is needed right through to delivery.
Since the Employer Network started HAE has delivered 413 days of training to 329 learners, with many more days booked in.
The team is pleased to announce the pilot for the plant and tool hire sector has been extended until 31st March 2024. This means members who are CITB registered and in-scope have an additional three months to plan and deliver training funded by the pilot.
