    Skills Assessment

    CAE Skills Assessment ensures we identify those individuals most likely to succeed in airline pilot training and then into a professional flying career.

    Skills Assessment takes place over one day at our Airline Careers and Assessment Centre at Oxford Airport, using specifically developed and validated methodologies and tools.

    The assessment includes:

    • Computer based testing
    • Technical test
    • Personality profiling
    • Teamwork exercises
    • Competency based interviews

    Assessment results are valid for 12 months from the date of your initial attempt.

    Although this process might initially sound daunting, it is actually quite enjoyable, and also enables potential students to have a closer look at our Oxford academy and to meet both staff and students in the day-to-day working environment, before committing to training.

    Brush up on your Maths Skills

    Once you have booked your skills assessment, we recommend that you brush up on your mental maths skills in preparation for the tests. To assist you in preparing for this, we have created a training module which is free for you to access. Simply register an account at our CAE Oxford Interactive Learning website. Once you are logged in, you can access the mental maths quiz here. Please note that this Online CBT will run on any platform that supports the Adobe Flash and Adobe Shockwave Plugins. Further details are available on our support page.
