CITB Levy Grants and Funding Changes

In January 2023, new standards will be introduced that ensure safe, consistent and high-quality plant operations throughout England, Scotland and Wales.


The first phase of changes will see new standards introduced for:

  • Excavator 360, above 10 tonnes (tracked)

  • Forward tipping dumper (wheeled)

  • Rear tipping dumper/ dump truck: articulated chassis (all sizes)

  • Ride on Roller

  • Telescopic handler: all sizes excluding 360 slew

  • Industrial forklift

  • Plant and Vehicle Marshaller

  • Slinger, Signaller: all types, all duties

Alongside these changes, the grants rates for plant training and tests will also be changed and improved.


Under the new changes a larger single grant will be available for all CITB registered employers. To claim grants, employers will only need to give their CITB registration number to the Approved Training Organisation (ATOs) delivering the training and testing.


Expected Grant Rates

From January, for those who require some training before taking a test, CITB are introducing an “experienced” plant grant rate. A separate, higher “novice” grant rate will be available for employers who are putting staff through plant training, who have never had experience in the type of machinery they are being trained in.


Current grant rates and the expected grant rates for the eight new standards are detailed below:


Tier 1

Current training rate: £120

Current CPCS testing rate: £250

Maximum rate claimed: £370

Proposed Novice Rate: £440

Proposed Experienced Rate: £370


Tier 2

Current training rate: £120

Current CPCS testing rate: £300

Maximum rate claimed: £420

Proposed Novice Rate: £500

Proposed Experienced Rate: £420


Tier 3
