As the Industry moves towards trade specific CSCS cards, NVQs are the most widely-recognised construction qualifications available in order to achieve this. They’re therefore an obvious choice for those looking to get on in the construction industry and move beyond the entry-level green Labourers CSCS card.
Construction NVQ courses are completed whilst on the job so you can carry on earning/working as you progress.
Once you’ve earned an appropriate Construction NVQ, you’ll be able to apply for the corresponding CSCS card. If you’re in the process of earning your first NVQ, you’ll be able to apply for a red ‘trainee’ CSCS card, provided that you’ve enrolled on the course in question and that you’ve completed a short Health, Safety and Environment Test. These last for five years, which is plenty of time to complete an NVQ.
Although obtaining a CSCS card is not a legal requirement, most major contractors and sites/projects within the industry require evidence of trade-specific competence.
NVQ Assessment Visits
The extent of the on-site assessment will depend on the level of the NVQ you choose. Lower-level courses involve simpler skills, and can be assessed in a shorter time-frame. More advanced NVQ courses that require you to perform more complex tasks/judgements will require more time.
Dates will be arranged with the Assessor to suit both you and your employer.
