It has never been a more important time to upskill yourself and your workforce
With the CLC (Construction Leadership Council) decision firmly establishing NVQ standards across all UK construction trades and with the uncertain times after Brexit, all the contractors will have to focus on obtaining a formal qualification for their already-skilled staff involved in the Construction Industry.
CLC’s decision: The minimum standard for skilled occupations is an NVQ Level 2 qualification relevant to the occupation plus a separate health and safety element.
What is an NVQ and how can I get it?
A National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in construction is a qualification designed for existing skilled trades in construction industry, which requires a formal qualification to attest their skills and expertise, accredited by Ofqual.
You can simply apply for any of our approved NVQ training & assessment programmes at https://cdc.college/apply
What’s the benefit?
The benefit of achieving an NVQ qualification in your specific trade/occupation in construction, is that demonstrates your competency and expertise across your role and it can also take you places. For example, the NVQ Level 7 Diploma in Construction Senior Management leads to MCIOB (Membership of the Chartered Institute of Building).
All of these NVQs provides access to the CSCS Cards Scheme.
What’s the process?
You’ll be professionally assessed by one of our assessors which will, anytime convenient to you, come and see you at work, on your construction site, how you ‘outperform’ – you are not required to sit any formal exams.
We’ll tailor and agree on your assessment plan and dates prior to your site visits. Therefore, you’ll not be required to attend to any classrooms or workshops to achieve your goal with us.
Can I be assessed anywhere in the UK?
Yes. We cover nationwide and can visit you anywhere in the UK.
Can I pay for my NVQ in installments?
Absolutely. We also provide tailored payment plans for our candidates.
What happens if I cannot complete my assessment process?
You’ll be allocated a period of 12 months from registration to complete the assessment process and supply the required evidence to your assessor.
To find out more, you can always call CDC on 020 8349 8002 or email@example.com where we’ll get back to you in 24 hours.
