NVQs & ON-SITE ASSESSMENT

TAKING ON AN APPRENTICE

GETTING YOUR WORKFORCE CARDED

GETTING THE GREEN CARD

NEED AN NVQ?

National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are the most widely recognised qualifications in the construction industry and they are the standard that all workers must achieve. These vocational qualifications form the basis of card holder schemes such as the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card.

IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT CARD, YOU MAY NOT BE ALLOWED TO WORK.

Construction Skills Solutions enables experienced workers to convert their existing skills into an NVQ certificate or diploma by assessing their work on-site (OSAT – on-site assessment and training) and building up a portfolio of evidence to support them. It’s done at your work, while you work, with a minimum of inconvenience for you or your employer. Generally, you can gain your qualification within 3-6 months. As it’s delivered on-site, we come to you, wherever in the country you work. We offer NVQs in construction craft and management from levels 2 to 6.

Level 2 should entitle you to the Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card

Level 3 should entitle you to the Gold CSCS card

APPRENTICESHIPS

Want to be an apprentice? Earn, learn and work at the same time

To enrol on an apprenticeship, you need to be employed. If you haven’t yet got a job, don’t worry, we might be able to help you. Your employer must pay you a wage while you’re an apprentice and ensure you have all the rights of any employee, for example, paid holidays. Currently the minimum apprenticeship wage is £3.70 per hour, but many employers will pay more than this.

You’ll work alongside skilled and experienced workers as well as receiving training from us (if you’re not in our catchment area, this will be your local college or training provider) usually one day per week.

Want to take on an apprentice? Yes, it really is worth it!

Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way for any business to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.

According to the National Apprenticeship Service, employers who have an established apprenticeship programme reported that productivity in their workplace had improved by 76% whilst 75% reported that apprenticeships improved the quality of their product or service. Other benefits that apprenticeships contribute towards include

– increasing employee satisfaction
– reducing staff turnover
– reducing recruitment costs
