Route to S/NVQ & Skilled Worker CSCS Card

CSCSGaining an S/NVQ is the only recognised route to getting the Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card. There is a specific NVQ for Timberframe Erectors consisting of 5 units at Level 2 and 9 units at Level 3. 

There is no attendance at college as you are assessed onsite by experienced assessors from the Construction Sector. Depending on how experienced you are, 1-3 site visits is normally enough to demonstrate competency.

Your portfolio will be electronic that can be accessed from any mobile, tablet or computer. Your assessor will go through this as part of the Induction process within 4 weeks of sign up.

Aligned with the increasing requirement for CSCS cards on principal contractor and major house builder construction sites, the STA, in partnership with Coleg Sir Gar, have developed an approved ' Pathways to Competence' methodology to help STA erector members achieve the Timber Frame Erection NVQ or SVQ, to meet the minimum competence qualification requirement to apply for the CSCS Timber Frame Erection Blue Skilled Worker Card.

Building on the successful introduction of the STA Timber Frame Competency Award Scheme (TFCAS), where many of the knowledge and skill requirements within the NVQ or SVQ will have been achieved, the approved methodology has been designed and aligned against the Four pathway categories adopted for TFCAS achievement detailed in link opposite Pathways.

Also included in the Pathways link are details of costs associated with this service much of which can be reclaimed via CITB.
