Holding answer received on 20 June 2018

The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) has engaged directly with 1,148 apprentices in England and the official receiver has reported that they have secured new employment, with wages, for 775 apprentices to date and one apprentice has moved into full time education.

The CITB continues to support all affected learners and offer a range of support options. They are currently engaged in further work with the apprentices specifically targeting the remaining cohort of disengaged learners. The active and disengaged figures fluctuate, as people engage and fall out of the process.

The breakdown of apprentices is as follows:


England Apprentices

In paid employment


Pending: Terms and Conditions agreed with new employer


Sub Total - official receiver reporting as successfully employed


Moved into full time education


Successful outcomes as per official receiver


Carillion reporting as Active (learner is engaged with matching process and actively seeking future employment)


Carillion reporting as disengaged (learner remains currently not engaged in matching process, despite numerous targeted communications)


Sub total


Total agreed as starting point
