A most important point to start with – NVQ’s (the letters stand for National Vocational Qualification) involve your work being assessed in the workplace. You cannot get your NVQ by just attending a training programme and you cannot just start getting assessed in a workplace until you have built up some experience. See why knowing that is important.
You can get your Carpentry NVQ Level 2 with SuperSkills in two ways:
By On Site Assessment and Training – We Come To You. This route is open to people who have three or more years of general site experience. This route involves our Assessor visiting you in the workplace and seeing what level you are working at.
He will judge your work and skills against the National Occupational Standards. This will establish the “gap” between your skills and those required for the Carpentry NVQ at Level 2. He then agrees an Individual Learning Plan with you. He will continue to visit you, give you on-the-job training and undertake assessments of your work.
At the same time, you will be building a file of evidence with photographs and any references you get from other trades. Once the evidence is there to show you are operating at the standard of a Skilled Worker, the assessments finish. Then you will be awarded your NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Wood Occupations, from our Awarding Body – CSkills Awards, the leading Awarding Body in Construction.
By Experienced Worker Practical Assessment – You Come To Us For One Day.
To access this route, you must have at least FIVE Years general site experience as a Carpenter. There are tens of thousands of excellent carpenters who have been working capably for decades, but never got their qualifications. Yet they need to have their Carpentry NVQ Level 2 to get a “Skilled Worker” CSCS Card as a carpenter.
The Construction Industry Training Board recognised this and created a Fast Track process for them to get their Carpentry NVQ Level 2. This gets the evidence of assessment in the workplace in a different way. People you have worked with and for – who must themselves be in the trade – certify your level of skill on site and this is backed up by undertaking a Professional Discussion and Practical Assessment at the SuperSkills Construction Training Centre.
Don’t be fooled, this is NOT an “Easy Option” and we turn down applicants nearly every day, because they don’t have broad enough experience to undertake it successfully. However, if you have got at least five years in the trade and you have been doing a full range of work, then this is quicker and certainly cheaper.
