What will I learn?

Workers in the construction trade, over 25 years old, who have five years or more experience in the relevant trade and sound knowledge of construction H&S.

Bricklaying, Site Carpentry, Painting & Decorating EWPA short courses, undertaken over one to two days, enable workers with five years or more experience to achieve NVQ Level 2 in their relevant trade through practical assessment. The NVQ Level 2 will provide access to site work and upgraded CSCS cards.

By using the skills and knowledge you have acquired over the years you will be required to complete a practical task at our construction centre. Successful completion of a professional discussion with the assessor, followed by referencing of work experience, will allow certification of the required NVQ Level 2.

What could I progress on to?

Upgrade your CSCS card and access more construction site jobs.

Increased recognition of your skills and, potentially, higher salary.

Candidates are expected to provide their own PPE and tools
