The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) has secured funding from the Employer Ownership of Skills initiative (E-OS) to fund skills training that will create jobs, raise skills and drive enterprise and economic growth.  The FMB has appointed CoRE to deliver Technical Skills training on an exclusive basis. This means that eligible courses offered by CoRE will be subsidised at a reduce rate.
