This week we were sent a review by Paul Virgo, who has completed his Fully Funded NVQ Level 2 in Site Carpentry (Joinery) with us, allowing him to apply for his Blue Skilled Worker CSCS Card.
With North West Skills Academy, you don’t just gain a qualification. You have full support throughout your assessment journey by our expert recruitment, assessment and learning support team. This support with your job knowledge and practical assessments allows you to do your job, which is to showcase your skills and experience in your trade, which is exactly what Paul has achieved.
What did Paul have to say?
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you, it would be fair to say that you have changed my life. You encouraged me to do my NVQ level 2 in site carpentry, you made me believe in myself and you have directly affected my ability to get work. I now believe in myself as a carpenter and have proof in terms of the NVQ to show to others.
Just to give you some idea I was earning £100 per day I now get £150. I also have secured a contract to make prototypes at £20 per hour and am in discussions about starting up a business with a previous employer. The NVQ or rather the confidence of having it has been a central part of this.
You handled matters perfectly, encouraging me, with firmness and confidence, passing me on to Tony who was also excellent and then my Dan my assessor who again was incredibly helpful. He just let me get on with the day, he could clearly see my skills from the word go and just let me get on with it.
So a huge thanks to you Jake, Tony and Dan.”
