CITB Launches Online Support Tool Pilot for Employees

CITB has launched a new online diagnostic tool to support employees with their English and Maths skills and is seeking apprentices to take part in a pilot.

The online programme assesses the current level of an individual’s development and understanding of both subjects and establishes a learning plan, with supporting educational resources provided in their personal account. 

CITB is conducting a pilot to evaluate whether the diagnostic tool can deliver a measureable improvement in an individual’s understanding of English and Maths, whether or not the individuals find the approach more beneficial than other learning methods and how much manging they require during the process. For those taking part in the pilot, modules can be completed at the individuals own pace alongside their apprenticeship.

Build UK has been provided with 30 places on the pilot for micro and SME companies, as well as a seat on the evaluation panel to discuss how the pilot could be implemented for the benefit of individuals, employers and the wider industry.

If your company would like to be involved please email with the following information by Thursday 30 March, in time for the launch which will be in late spring:

• Company and main contact name
• Email address
• Company Registration Number
• The name of the candidate you would like to participate in the scheme
• Contact telephone number.
