Closure of the Developing Digital Leadership Skills In Construction Programme
As from 30 April, the CITB removed the funding for all six of the digital leadership programmes until sometime in 2021. This includes the GCTG Developing Digital Leadership Skills in Construction SMEs programme. In an exchange of emails with the CITB they recognise that Digital Leadership is a critically important activity but not one they can fund at this time.
We are sorry that we are no longer able to support construction SMEs in the use of digital solutions at a time when the interest and need has never been greater. Although in March the CITB approved the delivery of the workshops online, now that funding has been removed we have reluctantly cancelled all future events, the curation of resources and the creation of vlogs etc
The need for digital adoption in construction is not going to go away so we will continue to explore how elements of this project can be delivered using a commercial model, most likely outside GCTG. Please get in touch if you have any suggestions.
We have so many people to thank who have helped to support and shape this project. If you are a delegate who attended or booked a workshop, a digital supplier who has provided content, or digital expert who shared your expertise, thank you, we appreciate your support. Also thank you to all the organisations, too many to list, who have promoted the programme on behalf of GCTG.
