The Skills Learning Exercise (SLE) -  now free to access

The SLE is now freely available to access as an online recruitment tool to support construction employers with their selection processes and help apprenticeship applicants to prepare for the SLE where it is adopted as part of a construction companies recruitment process.

The online SLE provides an assessment of an applicant's spatial and numeracy ability which assists with the selection process for a construction apprenticeship. 

The online SLE will provide the individual with their score details once it is completed and it can only be taken twice in any year.

In order to apply to CITB you must complete the application form found on bconstructive - the SLE is no longer taken as part of the CITB recruitment process.

It is also no longer a requirement for the SLE to be completed to access CITB Attendance Grants.
