North West Skills Academy Supports Festival of Learning

Adult learning with NWSA

June 17th marks the start of the week-long Festival of Learning. Spearheaded by the Learning and Work Institute, the annual campaign celebrates and promotes adult learning opportunities, encouraging everyone to embrace lifelong learning.

At North West Skills Academy, we fully support the ethos of the Festival of Learning and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to progress in their career. From construction NVQs to online learning and tutor led courses, NWSA is committed to helping individuals and businesses grow. One of the great things about NWSA is that your learning takes place in a real-life workplace environment.

Changing construction careers with funded NVQs

North West Skills Academy is proud to be one of the UK’s leading providers of construction NVQ assessments, helping time served tradespeople to get assessed, get CSCS compliant and get ahead in their careers.

Offering assessment via EWPA (Experienced Worker Practical Assessment) and OSAT (On Site Assessment and Training) routes, NWSA’s extensive course catalogue includes NVQ level 2 and level 3 qualifications in trades such as bricklaying, dry lining, passive fire protection and joinery, which upon completion allows you to get either your Blue or Gold CSCS Card.

NWSA will always endeavour to find funding for construction NVQ assessments, meaning that you or your employee could gain a nationally recognised qualification at no cost.

Online learning courses

Learning never stops in the workplace. NWSA have designed a range of online taught courses to help business owners and managers keep their staff up-to-date and compliant. Delivered via one-on-one tutor led interactive sessions, our online catalogue includes:

  • Health and Safety Online Training
  • Business Skills Online Training
  • Health and Social Care Online Training

Offering complete flexibility and the chance for learners to go over the material at their own pace, the online training packages are an optimum learning opportunity for employees.

Dedicated learner support for all

Whatever and however you study with NWSA, all of our adult learners have access to dedicated learner support services.

As a future focused training provider, we firmly believe that adult learning is an inclusive process that should be more than great quality teaching and assessment. Our specialist support officers are on hand to help learners with any further needs they may have in areas such as financial struggles, mental health and workplace health and safety.
