Can You get a Blue CSCS Card without an NVQ Level 2? 👷‍♂️👷‍♀️

Okay, so it’s not possible, you need an NVQ to get your Blue CSCS Card . Don’t worry though because North West Skills Academy has 100% Funded spaces throughout the UK for individuals and companies.

We have assessed over 5000 construction workers throughout the UK and we are a leading training provider in the country. Our team of expert construction assessors will guide you quickly through your course, whilst ensuring you are proving the quality of your work and skills. 

To be eligible for a Fully Funded NVQ Level 2 with us, you must have 2+ years’ experience in your trade and be employed/self employed working within your trade. The NVQ is made up two parts:

  1. Job Knowledge Questions proving your theoretical knowledge of H&S and your trade.
  2. Practical On Site Assessments that take place in the workplace, meaning minimal disruption to your work.

How long does it take to complete an NVQ Level 2?

It can take anything between 4 weeks and 4 months to complete an NVQ Level 2 with us, meaning you could have your Blue CSCS Card in no time if you’re willing to put in the effort.
