The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) is the statutory skills body for the Engineering Construction Industry (ECI) in Great Britain. A non-departmental public body (NDPB) sponsored by the Department for Education (DfE), the ECITB works with employers to attract, develop and qualify the engineering construction workforce in a wide range of craft, technical and professional disciplines.

The ECITB is accountable to parliament and funded by a levy that it is required to collect from the industry. The levy is used to support employers train and upskill their workforce to industry standards, develop qualifications and courses that meet employer needs, and regulate a network of approved training providers. The ECITB is also accredited as an Awarding Organisation by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual), Qualifications Wales and the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).
