The CCATF is a cross-industry initiative designed to increase employer engagement in apprenticeship training. Since December 2007 the CCATF has adopted a two-pronged approach: first, to communicate the positive messages to employers and second to influence Government policy to ensure the best environment for construction apprenticeship training is created.
“To champion the ethos and culture of training within the construction industry by working with industry peers and stakeholders; to encourage those not training to do so and those that train to do more by promoting the benefits and value that an apprentice can bring to an employer.”
2012 Annual Report
Construction is a sector with a very strong tradition of recruiting apprentices, but in 2012 construction output in Britain fell by 8.4% year on year and the number of people starting a construction apprenticeship in 2011/12 fell by 13% compared to the previous year.
