Research activity
Research provides us with facts about the industry. These details then form the building blocks for change and improvements in performance for those who use and work in construction. We undertake a regular programme of research that aims to identify the skills needed to improve the construction industry's competitiveness. We produce forecasts and analyses of skills demand in the industry on an annual basis.

CITB-ConstructionSkills research will be of interest to LSCs, RDAs, Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) colleges, private training providers, larger construction companies and careers advisers.
