Applying made easy

CITB-ConstructionSkills provides the best practical support to make everything as simple as possible. We can help with costs and advice by assigning one of our apprenticeship officers to make it as easy as possible.

Becoming an apprentice is simple:

Step 1

Take a look through the job roles and decide which apprenticeship you'd like to do, then fill in the application form.

Step 2

The next step is to attend our Skills Learning Exercise and undertake a Basic Skills test. The Skills Learning Exercise can either be completed online or in a classroom style session. You will need to attend a classroom style Basic Skills test so that we can ensure you have any support in place that you may need to complete your apprenticeship right from the start.

Step 3

Once you have successfully passed the assessment you can start applying for apprenticeship vacancies with construction companies.

CITB-ConstructionSkills do not offer employment, but we will offer you guidance about looking for work and notify you of any vacancies that we know about.

Once a construction company offers you an apprenticeship you can get on with earning and learning.
