Funded Construction NVQs with North West Skills Academy

North West Skills Academy offers training to experienced trades people who do not currently hold an NVQ. Our level 2 and 3 courses are designed with learners in mind and delivered via two routes: EWPA (experienced worker practical assessment)or OSAT (on site assessment and training). Both EWPA and OSAT options involve no lengthy college courses and minimal time away from work. Instead, workers demonstrate the skills they’ve been using every day at work in either a one-day assessment at one of our Assessment Centers (EWPA) or build up a portfolio of evidence and on site assessments at their place of work (OSAT).

As the UK’s leading provider of Government funded Construction NVQs, North West Skills Academy will always endeavour to help you access funding for your course where this is available. This means that you or your employees could gain a nationally recognised qualification at no cost, which will allow you go get your Blue or Gold CSCS Card.

The advantages of a construction NVQ

Upon successful completion of the course, workers will be eligible to apply for their Blue or Gold CSCS Card.
