The Importance of CSCS Cards in the Construction Industry

The CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) is the leading skills certification scheme within the UK construction industry. The CSCS provides a variety of cards designed to offer proof that industry professionals have the correct training, skills and qualifications for the job they are working on. In fact, many major contractors and housebuilders require an individual to hold the relevant card for their position before they will allow them to work on site.

We are pleased to offer programmes and apprenticeships that make participants eligible for CSCS cards. The cards include:

Pink Apprentice Card –if you are an apprentice who has started a programme with us on a recognised framework you may be eligible to apply for a Pink Card. The Pink Card is valid for four years and six months and cannot be renewed.

Blue Skilled Worker Card – if you have completed one of our construction related apprenticeships and/ or gained a NVQ or SVQ Level 2 construction qualification you might be entitled to a Skilled Worker Card. Eligible programmes include our Level 2 Construction Apprenticeships, including Carpentry and Joinery, Construction Operations and Civil Engineering Services, and Trowel Occupations.

Gold Supervisory Card – if you have finished a construction based supervisory or technical NVQ or SVQ level 3 or 4 you could be eligible for a Gold Card. The Card is aimed at individuals looking to progress their construction career in a technical, managerial or supervisory role. Our suitable programmes include Occupational Work Supervision Level 3.

Not only can you achieve your NVQ with us, but you can also be tested for your CSCS Cards as we are an accredited testing centre. Please contact us for more information.
