It’s All About Training

We do need CITB as the industry definitely needs a training board that will take care of the specific interests of the construction sector. However, London flooring experts will pay attention to the role of CITB in the future. It is invaluable when we speak of helping in maintaining qualifications and standards. And what is the role of the CFA? The association consults with members to establish their views on CITB and the changes that follow. In 2017 a matter that will be voted under consensus through a selection of federations. It’s a “yes” vote and the CFA will ensure that CFA levy paying members continue to get support and funds for all their training needs.

  • London flooring professionals explain that there are few training providers that offer 2-year apprenticeship courses. The role of CFA is to support the existing commercial providers and colleges to ensure apprenticeships will better cover the country.
  • A fact pointed out by flooring contractors in London is that the quality of training across the UK varies remarkably. However, they are confident that the quality which Fita training offers is good. It is of utmost importance to ensure that structured training is available – both older and younger workers need to be supported. The role of CFA here is to continue to support the industry through increasing the activity in the qualifications area and developing new courses.
  • Without a shadow of doubt the right communication is the key in every industry. This is why the CFA constantly updates their members on the developments and what is on offer. The CFA’s training guide, monthly email updates, newsletters and flooring articles are few of the means how the association spreads the information across the sector. The most valuable one among them definitely is the CFA’s training guide that is published annually and gives comprehensive information about the situation in the flooring industry.
