Many people who call us about getting their NVQ initially ask for the Bricklaying NVQ Level 3 – but actually only need to get a CSCS Card to be working on site. We almost always save people money by explaining all they need to do is undertake this assessment for the Level 2. However, if the Level 3 qualification is what you really want, take a look here.
SuperSkills REMOTE ASSESSMENT ROUTE for Bricklaying NVQ Level 2 is the best assessment process for Bricklayers who have considerable experience. The entire assessment process is conducted remotely – saving cost and inconvenience. We send you the details of how to get the evidence of your skills that is required and your assessor guides you through the process. You don’t lose any time off work and complete the qualification at a pace that suits you. If you’re not sure about having enough experience, we will advise you. You can see all our Bricklaying NVQ assessments here.
Five Simple Steps To Your Bricklaying NVQ Level 2

- Receive Our Online Training Package
- Get Photos & Videos Of Your Work
- Get Witness Testimonies Filled In (We Send You These)

Registration For The NVQ
When you call, we take all the details we need to register you with the Awarding Body – NOCN_CSkills Awards. CSkills is the leading awarding body in construction. SuperSkills has been with CSkills Awards since 2007.
Once you are registered, you can get a Red ‘Experienced Worker’ CSCS Card if you want. We send you a copy of your registration report from the awarding body and you apply to the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) for the card. You will need to have passed the CITB Health & Safety test for Site Operatives within the last two years. You can book a CITB Health & Safety Test here.
The Online Training Programme
Three Units of the Bricklaying qualification are delivered by an online learning package:
- Health & Safety
- Productive Working Practices
- Moving and Handling Resources
This training is a combination of video presentations and knowledge checks. It’s very similar to watching a YouTube video when you want to know something. After watching the video, you answer questions. We provide support at any time to help you go through the course.
We give you the details of how to access the training, you go online in your own time to complete the package and your assessor will give you feedback about it.
Getting Photos & Videos
First things first – this has to be your work as a bricklayer. (Some years ago, a candidate tried to pass off photos that weren’t his. One of our staff recognised them from the B&Q website.)
Most bricklayers have videos of jobs they have done. That’s great – but we need to see you working. Your assessor will guide you as to what is needed. You can take them with a mobile phone if you want. (We don’t need you to be Stephen Spielberg.) Just as long as the picture is clear and shows what you are working on. Keep the videos short – there’s a limit on file sizes for transfer. As with every other aspect of your assessment, we can help with file transfer if needs be.
These have to be from people who are in the trades and know your work. They do not have to be bricklayers, but need to know what they are talking about. Site Agents, Lead Contractors, Colleagues Employers, or if you only do ‘domestic’ jobs, other trades who have worked with you. They can all be filled out by one individual. Their knowledge of your work must be recent. The last three years is a good guide. We send the documents out to you with an envelope for their return. Here’s an example.
Your assessor will guide you as to who might be a good ‘witness’ in your case.
The Professional Discussion
When all the evidence has been gathered, the assessor will arrange your Professional Discussion with you. Think of it as a chat about your life as a bricklayer. We usually do this over a video link such as Zoom or Teams and it is recorded. It’s really important you aren’t nervous about this interview. You wouldn’t be on this programme if we didn’t think it’s right for you. You will be talking about how you work and what you do. The assessor will gather evidence of your skills and knowledge from your answers.
This is the final part of the assessment. Your Bricklaying NVQ Level 2 is complete.
What Happens Next
SuperSkills has been getting people qualified (more than 6000 so far) since 2006. We’ve been with CSkills Awards since 2007 and have ‘Direct Claim Status’ for most of our assessments. That means when we have completed the assessment and gone through an internal quality assurance process, we can claim the qualification from the awarding body without further review.
(If you’re using our ‘Easy Payment Scheme‘ and you have an outstanding balance, we will call you to see if you want to pay it off at this stage. It’s entirely up to you. However, we won’t claim the qualification until the account is settled.)
When we claim the qualification, the awarding body will generate the certificate. They say 8 working days for this to happen. That’s two weeks in real time. Sometimes the certificate arrives within a week, sometimes three weeks. Usually it’s about two weeks. We have no control over this timescale.
The day the certificate arrives with us, we send an electronic copy to you. You can use this to apply for the Blue CSCS Card. We put the original certificate into First Class Post and it normally arrives with you the next day.
We pride ourselves on a quick, simple and convenient process that makes getting your NVQ Level 2 in Bricklaying as simple as possible.
