  • Your email address needs to be one that you visit regularly. If you do not have an email address then search the internet to find a service that will let you create your own email address free of charge.
  • Remember to use an email address that won't offend any future employers.
  • NI Number – CITB collects your NI Number as it is needed on a lot of forms we have to complete in order to claim funding for your Apprenticeship. If you do not have an NI Number please enter a temporary number beginning TN followed by 6 numbers and ending in M or F (depending on your gender).
  • Scottish Candidate Number if you live in Scotland
  • English and Math results if you live in England (or your expected results)
