CITB Strategy and Policy Director Steve Radley, said: “This announcement gives real assurance to employers that migrant workers will be able to work in construction if they have the necessary skills, but do not hold a formal qualification. 

“The inclusion of key construction roles as part of the new skilled worker route is also welcome.

“Construction employers need clarity on how they will be able to effectively access skilled workers through the new system from January, while the industry develops a home-grown workforce.

“There will remain a continued need for access to migrant workers to bridge any emerging skills gaps that could impact on recovery.”
