SAP - Additional Learner Benefits

If you are a learner on a CITB Specialist Apprenticeship Programme, we have recently heard that you can apply for the NUS Extra Discounts Card.  There is an £11 subscription for the card (this does not enroll you as a member of the NUS, just as a beneficiary of their discount agreements).

  1. Simply go to: and apply for the card
  2. State that you are a student on a specialist apprenticeship programme with the CITB (this will be checked)
There are loads and loads of organisations offering cardholders discounts, some of them include:
  • AA Driving School
  • Amazon
  • Alton Towers
  • ATS Tyres
  • Austin Reed
  • ... there are loads more under 'A' and the rest of the alphabet
  • ... don't worry, McDonalds is on the list!
And.... there's more!

We have also learnt that some SAP learners have also successfully applied for and received 30% off Oyster travel in London.

The following is a transcript from Transport from London's website:
"If you are:
  • Aged over 18
  • In the first 12 months of an approved apprenticeship
  • Living in a London borough
You can get an apprentice oyster photocard to
  • Save 30% against the price of adult rate Travelcards and Bus & Tram passes
You will need:
  • Your ULN [Ed-On your registration paperwork from CSkills Awards]
  • A UK provider reference number
  • A colour, digital photo to upload
  • An active email address
  • A credit or debit card to pay the £10 fee."

If you are on Specialist Apprenticeship Programme with Priestman Associates LLP you will most likely qualify for this deal.  If a learner needs their ULN or UKPRN number they should call the CITB on 0300-456-5562 and tell them their name and registration number (usually the same number which appears on their CSCS card, or H&S Touch Screen test certificate).  Let me know if you are successful.

As they say, every penny counts!
