Are you working in the construction industry but do not have a NVQ qualification in your specialist trade?

If so On Site Assessment & Training (OSAT) is your route to gaining recognition for the skills that you possess.
OSAT allows you to continue working full time on site with no college attendance needed.

A specialist assessor will work with you in the workplace to guide you through your qualification ensuring you know exactly what to do to successfully complete your NVQ qualification.

Completing a NVQ 2 in Plastering will make you eligible to apply for a CSCS Blue Skilled Worker Card.

‘Completing an OSAT was ideal for me. My assessor was really helpful making sure I knew exactly what to do. Completing my NVQ means I have finally gained my trade qualification.’
Kevin Dunbavin, NV2 (OSAT) Plastering

  What You Will Learn
