NEW Entry Level 3 and Level 1 Qualifications
Cskills Awards are developing a range of new training qualifications suitable for the start of the construction career journey.
Our new suite of Entry Level 3 Awards, and Level 1 Awards and Certificates (1 MB, PDF) have been developed across five trades: Bricklaying, Carpentry and Joinery, Painting and Decorating, Plastering, and Wall and Floor Tiling. We have also developed Multicraft and Multitrade options allowing learners to try multiple trades within one qualification. These will be available for registration on 1 August 2013. To find out more about these qualifications, please click on the brochure to the right.
We're introducing these qualifications at half price for the remainder of 2013 (£27.50 for awards and £32.50 for certificates). There will be no exam fee as they are assessed via the workbook.
The new assessment method will allow learners to complete the workbook with their trainers at a speed they feel comfortable with, minimising the time spent in the classroom and allowing more 'hands on' workshop time. By avoiding an end test we anticipate that the rentention rates will be high.
The assessment workbooks will be standardised but we are putting the control in to your hands allowing a flexible delivery style. These will be downloadable from Awards Online and will have accompanying trainer guidance which provides clear and straightforward information to support a trainer when writing lesson plans.
To keep your delivery costs down, wherever possible, we have not specified the materials that you must use. This allows you to utilise more cost effective resources and resuse and recycle as much as possible.
With the introduction of the Multicraft/trade options the learner will now be able to try a number of trades before committing to a larger trade qualification.
The virtual learner journey provides learners with a visual tool to help them understand the potential training routes available to them in the industry.
Benefit from FREE desktop approval until the 31 October 2013, if you already offer our diplomas in these trades and have staff registered at your centre.*
We want to make this approval process as simple and streamlined for you as possible. There are no forms to fill in, you just need to contact your customer co-ordinator on 0344 994 4020 and we’ll do the rest for you! Your approval will be processed so that on 1 August 2013 you will be able to register your learners for these qualifications.
