L2 NVQ

A Selection of L2 NVQ’s available through Workforce Skills Support is below.

NVQ Level 2 Construction qualifications are ideal for those who have years of experience but no formal qualifications.

​Whilst at their place of work, individuals will be visited by their assessor who will guide them through each part of the process, observe them working and provide the highest levels of support until they complete their qualification. Ideal for individuals and employers needing to avoid downtime and days away from site.​

Once the NVQ Level 2 in Construction is achieved you can apply for the CSCS blue skilled worker card. This card is valid for 5 years.

For experienced operatives with recent job experience, a red experienced operative card can be issued on a temporary basis whilst a related construction NVQ is being achieved.

​If you are unsure what NVQ’s are suitable or what cards are available at each stage, please contact Workforce Skills Support for further information and advice.
