The CITB was established in 1964 and was one of a number of training boards covering UK industries. It was a non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills until 2016 when it moved to the Department for Education. The activities of the CITB have been redefined by Statutory Instruments.
In 2003 the licence for the new construction industry Sector Skills Council (SSC) was awarded to to “ConstructionSkills”, a partnership between the CITB and the Construction Industry Council (CIC). The CITB became known as CITB-ConstructionSkills, or simply ConstructionSkills, for the most of the next 10 years.
In March 2013, it was announced that the organisation would drop brands such as CITB-ConstructionSkills, CSkills Awards and National Construction College and revert to its original CITB name as a result of industry feedback suggesting that multiple brands were causing confusion. In May 2017, the awarding body Cskills Awards was sold to another industry awarding body NOCN.
