What is the difference between a CSCS & CPCS NVQ?

A Plant NVQ relates to the plant categories. CPCS Red Card holders can convert that Red card to a CPCS Blue Card via the NVQ.

The CSCS NVQ is a trade or skilled worker Blue Card e.g. Wood occupations/Roofing occupations.

How long does a level 2 NVQ take to complete?

The NVQ level 2 can be completed in 2 site visits.

What card do I get?

Level 2 Blue Card

Level 3 & 4 Gold Card with the exception of A62 = Blue Card

Level 6 Black Card

Do I need experience?

You do not need any experience to begin a NVQ. You will need to gain experience and demonstrate knowledge & understanding prior to the completion of the NVQ.

Is an NVQ done on site or at the test centre?

Profile and Induction can and may be delivered at TUTS GROUP. The practical elements of the NVQ must be carried out on a live working site. Simulated work is not allowed.

Do I need a valid CSCS card? Which one?

You do not need to have a CSCS test to begin or complete your NVQ. You will, however, be unable to apply for any related CSCS or CPCS card.

Is there funding?

TUTS Group only delivers the highest quality of training and service, therefore we do not access funding for NVQ categories. TUTS Group will work with you to apply for the CITB skills training fund grant, up to £10K.
