Course description

This is a fantastic course which reflects what Carpenters really need to do once working on site. We have combined a C&G Carpentry qualification with NVQ reality training where larger projects are undertaken and completed giving you a real insight into the kind of work you can expect to be undertaking. NVQ registration will produce the right CSCS card (once you sit a CSCS test) to gain you access to any site as a Carpenter. Weekend training is also available to complete this course.

Once you have completed your 8 weeks of intensive, hands on carpentry training, you will then be industry ready which is where you need to be toachieve the Carpentry NVQ.

Throughout the entire 8 weeks, you will be trained and assessed to achieve a C&G qualification as well as receive training which reflects reality and also provides you with a comprehensive understanding of what you will need to do to eventually achieve the NVQ level 2.

Additional Info

NVQs are Declarations of Competence and as such, cannot be achieved in a simulated environment like a training centre all we can do here is prepare you for the process and we do this very well.

At the end of the course, Able Skills will register you with CITB (NOCN) to show that you are working towards achieving NVQ level 2 in Carpentry and we will provide you with a start-up portfolio which will include all of the evidence and assessment sheets ready for you to use as and when you gather your work based evidence.

By registering you for NVQ, you can also gain access to a CSCS Experienced Worker or Trainee card (if you arrange independently to sit a CSCS test) this will further enhance your access to work.
