Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will CSP charge me for completing my Skills & Training Fund application?

A: No. We simply ask that we organise and deliver the training for you.


Q: Do I have to pay in advance for the training?

A: No. If your application is successful, the CITB will deposit the funding in your company’s bank account prior to the training being delivered.


Q: Will the COVID-19 situation be taken into account?

A: Yes. All training will be scheduled for a time when courses are running again as normal.


Q: How long will we have to complete the training?

A: You have as long as you need to complete the training, however it makes sense to conclude all training within one year, as under the current rules you will then be able to submit an application for further funding.


Q: Why should I use CSP to help me write my bid?

A: During that last round of funding we helped over 150 companies to secure funds. We have the knowledge and expertise to give your application the maximum chance of success.
