Construction NVQs

The National Vocational Qualification, or the NVQ, is considered the industry standard in the construction business. The scheme is popular with both employers and trainees because of its flexibility allowing learners to work and study at the same time.

An NVQ is a great way to learn a construction craft and there are many construction NVQ’s available for a wide variety of trades including; carpentry, plastering, steelfixing, formwork, bricklaying and many more. During NVQ training, time may be split between working on site learning your chosen occupation and studying the theoretical areas at home to minimise the impact on your working day.

By completing a Construction NVQ in your chosen field you will be recognised as a qualified member of the workforce, this means you will eligible for the CSCS or CPCS card scheme.
